Explore the Tasman Peninsula from both land and sea on a full-day excursion from Hobart.

Gain invaluable insights from your interpretive guides on this Tasman Peninsula day tour, which includes morning tea and lunch.

What You'll Get

Board the tour bus in Hobart and enjoy a scenic drive along the coast to the Tasman Peninsula. After morning tea at a local cafe (included), transfer to a three-hour wilderness cruise along the Tasman National Park coastline, from Eaglehawk Neck to Port Arthur.

From the boat, admire the highest vertical sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, visit sea caves and see cliff-nesting peregrine falcons. The boat features covered open-air tiered seating so everyone gets a good all-round view, improving your chances of maybe spotting whales, seabirds, seals and dolphins swimming at the bow of the boat. The interpretive guides will shed light on the peninsula’s ecosystems, wildlife and history.

Back on dry land, enjoy lunch (included), before spending three hours at the World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site. Feel the spooky atmosphere at this former penal colony set in landscaped grounds, and hear tales from the site’s convict days as you tour the evocative ruins, which include the guard tower, church and main penitentiary.

The trip back to Hobart departs at around 4.30pm, arriving in the city at around 6pm.
