A 30 minute tour passing through the bustling Hobart waterfront over to the historic stone IXL building and the Cruise Terminals, this jaunt gives you a real appreciation of Hobart’s connection to the sea and the mountains with Mt Wellington looming behind the city. This area of the Waterfront was the site of the first settlement of Hobart in 1804. Hunter Island has now become Hunter Street and the IXL Jam Factory is now the Henry Jones’ Art Hotel. Such wonderful repurposing of these architecturally valuable buildings has seen them live into the 21st Century and, hopefully, beyond.
This tour is a real favourite with families. Some lucky passengers even get to spot our resident harbour seal! One thing is certain, you’ll see lots of happy and excited faces and people waving to you as we pass them by! You’ll be able to practice your royal wave as you travel in our sumptuous carriage. Why not add a Unicorn Option to help celebrate a little one’s birthday or even a Romance Package if you’d like to show the one you love how special they truly are.
