Please reach the departure point for this tour, Tasmanian Travel Centre, Corner of Elizabeth and Davey Streets in time to board the coach tram which will take you around the city. There will be some stops along the way where you will have the opportunity to get off the tram and visit the attraction.
The highlights of this tour include:
• Sullivan’s Cove: This ferry terminal has great historical significance. It was here that the first settlement took place and thousands of convicts from England landed here.
• Salamanca Pace: An old Georgian-style warehouse which after restoration houses restaurants, pub and galleries.
• Princes Park: This was once a gun battery (a unit of guns grouped together for command and control).
• Battery Point: Once a station of keeping arms and ammunition, today it is home to pubs, boutique shops and restaurants.
• Parliament House: Parliament House has been the meeting place of the Government of Tasmania since 1841. The building was originally designed as a customs house, and from 1841 until 1904 when the customs offices were relocated, the building served both purposes.
• St. David’s Cathedral: The St. David’s Cathedral in Hobart is the principal Anglican church in Tasmania. St David's is the Bishop of Tasmania's principal place of teaching. It is a cathedral because it is the place where the bishop's cathedra or seat is placed. It is also the venue for great occasions of diocese, city and state.
Cross the Tasman Bridge over Derwent River and see panoramic views over Kangaroo Bay Marina and Bellerive.
Visit the remains of the Female Factory, once a fudge factory and prison for women and stop at the Rosny Hill Lookout for stunning views of Hobart and Sandy Bay.
