Description:

Discover the culture and heritage of Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania, and see some of its popular attractions, including Sullivan's Cove, Salamanca Place, and Battery Point. Afterwards, soak into Richmond's nostalgic colonial charm on this half-day coach tour.

Start your half day tour with a pick up from your hotel and travel to the initial landing site and birthplace of the city, Sullivan's Cove. Founded in 1804, the cove holds large sentimental value for the city and still serves as the main port for Hobart. Afterwards, pass the Parliament House and take time to wonder at the historic and elegant districts of Salamanca Place and Battery Points. Admire the majestic Georgian architecture, present in warehouses, boutiques, galleries, and pubs.

Continue your journey and visit the original sandstone railway station at the ABC buildings. Then head out on the Brooker Highway and see Tasmania's largest indoor arena, Derwent Entertainment Center. Before heading back to the city, cross the Richmond Bridge, the oldest road bridge in Australia, and arrive in Richmond. Explore this vibrant town and marvel at the amazing Georgian-styled gaol (jail), mansions, and small cottages while you enjoy the surroundings.
