Overview

Our Waterfront Jaunt takes you through Hobart's bustling Waterfront, the site of the first settlement. You'll pass by the imposing stone IXL building, and over Constitution Dock, famous for the finish line to the Sydney-Hobart yacht race. You'll even travel next to the boats at Victoria Dock. Keep an eye out for our resident harbour seal, Sammy, who often frequents the area. Return through historic Salamanca Place.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. So glad both you and your mum enjoyed the tour. We genuinely hope you will visit Tasmania and, especially, Hobart again soon and maybe come along for a Battery Point tour this time. Thanks again!

We took the 1 hr Battery Point Tour from Salamenca Markets! It exceeded any expectation we had, this is not a typical "tourist tour". This is a fabulous way to get a full understanding of how it was back then. Our host was extremely well...More

Everyone should experience this carriage ride into the past where you learn the history of the area. Steve and Sharon are very informative and accommodating on the area and the travelers needs. Their patience was very welcoming!
