Tours - Heritage Horse Drawn Carriages
Summer is party time in Hobart. Tasmanians are out and about enjoying the sunshine, the Waterfront is alive with colour and Constitution Dock is full of yachts, celebrating the Sydney-Hobart Yacht Race.
This also means that some of our tours may be impacted by road closures. We may also not be able to operate on our usual Friday to Sunday routine. However, we’ll make up for that by operating on alternative days. We’ll also be operating on most cruise ship days.
Are you looking for a unique and memorable way to see Hobart? Nothing can compare to a horse and carriage ride through our beautiful Waterfront or Battery Point. We take our time so you can appreciate everything but there are “hold on to your hat” moments, especially if you come along for our Battery Point Jaunt!
There’s lots of options to add to your carriage ride to make it even more memorable – a romance or indulgence option, Unicorn Tours or choose our Tally-Ho Tea option for a high tea delivered direct to your carriage. If you’d like to enjoy a drink during your tour, just let us know when you board.
We operate Friday to Sunday but our schedule can change to include cruise ship days and some public holidays.
Would you like to give a Gift Card for family or friends? Just choose the tour you like and then click on the Gift Card button and you can print out the Gift Card to give to the lucky recipient. If you are wanting a Gift Card which includes options such as a Unicorn Tour or for a specific dollar value instead of a tour, just call us instead and we can assist.
Fourth is Free!
If you loved your carriage ride, why not come along again and again and then your fourth ride will be free. Your fourth free ride will be an average of the three previous rides or you may like to upgrade by paying the difference. Just ask us for a Frequent Riders’ Card.
Not only do we endeavour to meet your special requests, we are happy to have guests with any special needs. A carriage ride is an experience everybody, regardless of ability, is able to enjoy and remember. Please feel free to call us and let us know your situation. Customers with assistance dogs and those with mobility impairment can be catered for. You can read our Access Statement here.
A Special Gift for Christmas or any occasion…
It doesn’t matter what the occasion is – birthdays, anniversaries, proposals….you can show your loved one you care by treating them to a carriage ride.
Want to give a gift voucher? Gift vouchers are a fantastic way to give a present that is always appreciated. We can cater for all budgets and the lucky recipient can choose when they would like to enjoy their carriage ride. Just click on the tour you’d like to give for a gift, and you can buy a gift voucher online.
Group Bookings for Historic Town Tours
Would your group like to tour historic towns such as Richmond, Ross or Oatlands? These towns are like a step back in time and are well worth a visit. We can run carriage tours of these towns, showing the highlights from the comfort and ease of a carriage. Ideal for seniors’ groups. Bookings essential.
Want to make that next function a truly memorable one? Everybody remembers the sights and sounds of a horse drawn carriage. We can cater for Christmas parties, corporate events, festivals. In fact, if you can organise it, we can be there!
Weddings and School Formals
Of course, we cater for weddings! We can make your wedding, engagement, school formal or any special occasion memorable. Enjoy the day from our open vis-à-vis carriage (which can be closed in inclement weather) or, for that extra luxury, our white wedding coach is the way for any bride to feel like a princess on her special day.
We can travel to anywhere in Tasmania to make your dreams come true. If you have a large bridal party that you would like to cater for, we are happy to use both our carriages. Get inspiration from our Weddings page
Complimentary champagne and chocolates or berry platter (in season) for the bride and groom.
For School Formals, we can guarantee heads will turn when you arrive in either the white coach or the black landau, driven by a pair of matched horses. We also travel to formals anywhere in the state. School formal season is extremely busy, so please book early.
