Take in the highlights of central Hobart on a 2-hour walking tour led by a local guide. Stroll along Hunter Street and the Hobart waterfront, view Salamanca Place, and walk through a city park as you hear about the colonial roots of the capital of Tasmania, and see heritage buildings with Victorian and Georgian architecture. Enjoy a more intimate perspective on the city during this small-group tour that has a maximum group size of eight people.
What to Expect
Meet your guide outside the Henry Jones Art Hotel and then set off on your 2-hour walking tour to explore streets, buildings, people and history of Hobart. Elegant heritage listed buildings are in abundance on your tour route, and as you walk, your guide will point the details of the beautiful, well-preserved Georgian and Victorian architecture.
You’ll enjoy the stories of the colonial beginnings of city, detailing the troubles and successes the British settlers experienced, as well as stories of the Indigenous people of the area and their responses to British invasion. Continue your walk through time and into town working your way up to the seat of power housing church, court and prison. Stroll through a city center park and be delighted – and amazed – at the statues and the stories behind them.
Then head down to another lovely park with a dark secret that many of the locals still don’t know about. Finally arrive at Salamanca Place – world famous for its Saturday markets, the oldest markets in Australia. Your guide will be happy to direct you to some favorite cafes for a reviving coffee after the tour.
