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 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. The Waterfront by night is just beautiful and romantic. A 30 minute tour which costs $50.00 per adult and $10 per child (under 15) with a minimum 2 adult charge. Group and family pricing available.
