Hobart Day Tours

If you’re more of a history buff than an art buff, Hobart has you covered. Join our Port Arthur Day Tour to learn about the Australia’s colonial history. The port was once used as a prison, confining convicts in the peninsula with vicious dogs and shark-invested waters. You can easily spend a day here learning the stories on inmates and guards while exploring the colonial era buildings.

Before you head home for the night, take a walk along the foreshore at the docks. Hobart still has many colonial era sandstone facades that you simply must see. Watch as they come to life each night as the sun sets, lighting the buildings a glistening gold glow. Sometimes it is the simple, free things that become the ones you never forget.
