Hobart Historic Walking Tour

Journey into Hobart’s fascinating past. Discover how and why the island was first settled and hear tales of the struggles of early settlers. Walk past St David’s Cathedral, the old gaol and treasury, into the lovely park that was the first burial ground. Your expert guide will point out some of the earliest structures of the city, as well as the famous sandstone buildings, still in excellent condition today. Hear stories of important characters, from the troublesome military officers to those who worked their way up from the very bottom to positions of achievement including the legendary Sir John & Lady Jane Franklin, 1840’s governor of Tasmania. Your guide will carry old maps and archival images of old scenes, so you can compare past and present. Finish your tour in the famous Salamanca, built for the whaling industry, with a tribute to Abel Tasman. It’s a fascinating, first-hand history lesson you won’t find in a book. Special Notes: This tour is not suitable for guests in wheelchairs or those with limited mobility. Guests with visual or hearing impairments must travel with a companion at all times. To make your day as enjoyable as possible please wear comfortable, flat-soled shoes, clothing suited to the weather conditions, bring a hat, plenty of sunscreen and bottled water. Our guides carry old maps and archival images of old scenes to enhance your experience. We will collect you directly from the side of your ship, and provide you with commentary about the waterfront as we walk to the city, so beautifully cradled around the harbour and backed by magnificent Mt. Wellington.
