Overview
Enjoy the ride aboard a historical tram while discovering the top attractions in Hobart. Hear live informative commentary as you roll past landmarks including St. George’s Church, Sullivan’s Cove, and Anglesea Barracks; take in the heritage homes around Battery Point; and cruise the restaurants lodged in Georgian warehouses at Salamanca Place. This tour reveals more by tram—converted to motorized bus—with a local guide at the helm.
What to Expect

Make your own way to Brooke Street Pier and board your tram for the 3-hour Hobart sightseeing tour.

Take in the sights and listen to informative commentary about Hobart as your guide steers the tram through small streets, waterfront boulevards, and quaint neighborhoods. Pass by top sights including Parliament House, St. George’s Anglican Church, Anglesea Barracks, Princes Park, the base of Mt. Wellington, Cascade Gardens and Brewery, St. David’s Cathedral, the Treasury Building and Franklin Square, Constitution Dock, and Victoria Dock.

Learn about Hobart’s past and the convict laborers who built some of its historical buildings, see the remaining bits of the Cascades Female Factory prison, and pause at Sullivan’s Cove—considered Hobart’s birthplace.

Cross over the Derwent River via the Tasman Bridge and get a lovely view of Hobart, Mt. Wellington, and Glenorchy from the Rosny Hill Lookout before your tour ends back at the Brooke Street Pier.

Great snapshot of Hobart
