Cruise Ship Passengers

Special Tour for Passengers Visiting the Port of Hobart

First stop is at the Tasmanian Salmon Ponds in Plenty. The Salmon Ponds are the Hatchery for all of Tasmania's lakes. You can hand feed the fish and take a tour of the Trout fishing Museum.

Mt Field National Park to see the spectacular Russell Falls nestled among ancient fern forests, giant eucalypts and pristine waterways, which is the home of the Platypus and other exotic native wildlife. The walk to the base of the falls is a gentle 10 minutes along a defined and wide pathway. Other walks to the 'Giant Tree Forest' are also available. Rest rooms and light refreshments are available at the visitors centre as we enter the falls.

From Mt Field we go to Bonorong Wildlife Park. Bonorong has some unique Australian and Tasmanian wildlife. See Tasmanian Devils being fed by the rangers. Have your picture taken with a Koala, or hand feed the Kangaroos and see the world's only egg laying mammals.

We would then come to Richmond Village. Richmond is a historic village with an interesting past. Attractions include the oldest and best preserved Colonial Gaol in the commonwealth. Australia's oldest bridge and Catholic church, nice walks by the picturesque river, crafts, fantastic hand made sweets shops, model village displays and a maze of hedges based on the one at Hampton Court England. The tour of the Gaol and some of the other village sites takes about an hour.

We then head back into Hobart, stopping at Rosny Point lookout, an ideal spot to take a photo with your ship and Mt Wellington forming the backdrop to a spectacular view of Hobart.
