Silversea Luxury Cruises A Hobart, Tasmania

Hobart, Tasmania

Straddling the Derwent River at the foot of Mt. Wellington's forested slopes, Hobart was founded as a penal settlement in 1803. It's the second-oldest city in the country after Sydney, and it certainly rivals its mainland counterpart as Australia's most beautiful state capital. Close-set colonial brick-and-sandstone shops and homes line the narrow, quiet streets, creating a genteel setting for this historic city of 215,000. Life revolves around the broad Derwent River port, one of the deepest harbors in the world. View more

Here warehouses that once stored Hobart's major exports of fruit, wool, and corn and products from the city's former whaling fleet still stand alongside the wharf today.Hobart sparkles between Christmas and New Year's—summer Down Under—during the annual Sydney-to-Hobart yacht race. The event dominates conversations among Hobart's citizens, who descend on Constitution Dock to welcome the yachts and join in the boisterous festivities of the crews. The New Year also coincides with the Tastes of Tasmania Festival, when the dockside area comes alive with the best of Tasmanian food and wine on offer in numerous cafés, bars, and waterfront stalls. Otherwise, Hobart is a placid city whose nightlife is largely confined to excellent restaurants, jazz clubs, and the action at the Wrest Point Casino in Sandy Bay.The Hobart Tasmanian Travel and Information Centre hours are weekdays 8:30–5:30 and Saturday 9–5.

Excursions depuis Hobart, Tasmania

Exclusive Nocturnal Nights at Bonorong

Discover the nocturnal animals of Tasmania at dusk during this half-day, Exclusive early-evening sightseeing excursion to the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. The park is open to Silversea guests on an Exclusive basis.


Hobart & Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

Depart the pier at dusk for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, where the animals come to life as the sun goes down. Many of the park's animals are nocturnal, or crepuscular, meaning that they are most active at dusk and dawn. The park will be closed to the general public, thereby offering you an extremely personalized experience as you tour the park and get up-close to the animals.


Guided Tour, Photo & Feeding Opportunities

This early-evening, narrated and guided visit also offers splendid photo and feeding opportunities that are simply not available during the day. During your visit, learn all about the park's inhabitants, including the Tasmania devils, quolls, wombats, koalas, and friendly, free-roaming kangaroos and wallabies. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1.24 miles (about two kilometres), at times over uneven surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing in layers with flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring sun protection and a light jacket from the ship.

Hobart Highlights

Discover the highlights of the 'Jewel of the South' with very little walking during this scenic, half-day tour of Hobart via coach.


Salamanca Place & Battery Point

Depart the pier for a narrated, panoramic sightseeing drive designed for passengers who prefer to discover the history and landmarks of Hobart with little or no walking. Proceed past the historic warehouse complex of Salamanca Place, which now houses shops and restaurants. Along the way, see the elegant, 19th-century mansions and quaint cottages of Battery Point.


Mt. Wellington

Next, ascend Mt. Wellington (or Mt. Nelson, depending on weather conditions), which towers nearly 4,000 feet (1,230 metres) above sea level and is among the area's tallest mountains. Upon arrival, take in spectacular vistas of Hobart City and the southeastern shores. After your photo stop, re-board your coach and drive by Australia's oldest brewery en route to Queens Domain and the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.


Botanical Gardens & Hobart City

Your tour continues with a visit to the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. Established in 1818 at an Aboriginal site on the Derwent, the botanical gardens feature historic plant collections, 19th-century trees and native Tasmanian species. Upon arrival, some free time is made available for a leisurely stroll about the grounds.


Following your visit, re-board your coach for an orientation drive past the picturesque shops, government buildings and landmarks of downtown Hobart before returning to the pier.


Please note: This tour requires a minimal amount of walking, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach. This tour is suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair; however, guests must be able to get on/off the coach without assistance. Walking at the gardens is at the discretion of each guest. Lightweight, comfortable clothing and sun protection are recommended. The coach supply in Hobart is limited; the standard of coaches and commentary may not be of the same standard encountered in other ports around Australia. The tour sequence may vary.

MONA - Discovery in Style

Indulge your senses on this half-day exploration of Australia's newly-opened and provocative Museum of Old and New Art (MONA).


Depart the pier for the short transfer to the ferry terminal. Travel by ferry in the Post Pit across the Derwent River to the MONA. Enjoy the sights of scenic Hobart from an exclusive lounge and separate deck with extra comfortable seating, table service and complimentary canapes, pastries and locally produced beverages.


Museum of Old & New Art

After the half hour crossing, you will be given a hosted introduction to Mona. Explore the Museum of New Art and discover what has made this such a talked about and famous collection. This radically innovative institution that opened on the banks of the Derwent River in January 2011, showcases the largest private collection of art in Australia. The property is a cultural haven where outstanding art, architecture and antiquities are fused with the surrounding, natural landscape. Its $100 million private collection focuses heavily on themes of sex and death, and is presented in a uniquely creative setting, a purpose-built $75 million edifice that challenges our notions of what an art museum should be. There are none of the traditional 'white cube' gallery spaces. Instead, labyrinthine passageways and Escher-like stairways connect three underground levels. The artwork is not labelled; instead you are each given an iPod touch called the 'O' that permits random exploration.


After time in the museum you will have a private tour of the vines and a private wine tasting before reboarding the ferry back to Hobart to your waiting transfer to the ship.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking and is at guest's discretion. All areas visited are wheelchair accessible; however, guests must be able to embark/disembark the ferry by themselves. There are 99 steps on arrival at the museum and concrete walkways to navigate. Walking inside the museum is at each guest's discretion. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility. The museum features some art with sexual, religious and death themes and may not be to everyone's taste. Please make sure to have a hearty breakfast and schedule a late lunch with your butler as tour will not be back in time for lunch on board.

Mt Wellington Bushwalk

Experience the splendid natural beauty and panoramic vistas of Mount Wellington during this panoramic, half-day bushwalk excursion.


Hobart & Mount Wellington

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 45-minute drive to the foothills of Mount Wellington, a mountain in the southeast coastal region of Tasmania, Australia. It is the summit of the Wellington Range, and within the Wellington Park reserve. Located at the foothills of the mountain is much of Tasmania's capital city, Hobart. Mount Wellington rises to a height of 4,170 feet (about 1,271 metres) above sea level, and is frequently covered by snow, sometimes even during summer. The lower slopes are thickly forested with towering tree ferns and moss, but crisscrossed by many walking tracks and a few fire trails.


Guided Nature Walk

Upon arrival, begin your guided and narrated nature walk. Learn about the history of the mountain and natural environment during your trek through cool, forested gullies and along two of the best of Mt. Wellington's many walking tracks on the eastern foothills of the mountain. Upon arrival at an enclosed lookout near the summit, take in splendid panoramic vistas of Hobart and the Derwent River (weather-permitting). At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 3.7 miles (about 6 kilometres), at times over uneven, cobblestone, natural and rocky surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and five flights of stairs at the sites visited. This tour is recommended for guests in good physical condition, and is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing in layers with flat, sturdy, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring sun protection and a weatherproof coat from the ship. This excursion operates in all weather conditions. Space on this tour is extremely limited; we suggest you book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Port Arthur Express

Enjoy the natural beauty of the Tasman Peninsula and visit one of Australia's most feared penal colonies during this guided walking tour of Port Arthur.


Port Arthur

Depart the pier for the 60-mile (96-kilometre) drive from Hobart to the Tasman Peninsula and listen as your driver provides commentary. Head towards infamous Port Arthur, where upon arrival, you are met by a park ranger who leads you on an approximate 40-minute guided walking tour through one of Australia's most feared penal colonies. Established on the Tasman Peninsula as a timber-cutting station in 1830, Port Arthur grew in size and importance in the last decades of transportation. More than 10,000 convicts were transported here from England during the forty years the prison was used and it was these same prisoners who eventually became the settlers of this new land. Now an historic site, Port Arthur has been carefully restored, making it easier to explore these fascinating ruins.


During your tour, visit interesting sites that include the church, which was designed by an inmate, along with the penitentiary, hospital, old guard house, and a model prison - a radical experiment in prison design for the time. Some free time will also be made for independent exploration at your leisure.


At the appointed time, re-board your coach for the transfer back to Hobart and the ship.


Please note: Although the amount of walking and sites seen at Port Arthur are at each guest's discretion, an extensive amount of walking is required to see Port Arthur fully. It is a pedestrian-only site. Walking distance is approximately 1.5-2 miles (2-3.5 kilometres), some of which is over natural, uneven ground and involves stairs. Some ruins have cobbled, uneven flooring and steps, and narrow doorways that must be negotiated. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. The drive to Port Arthur is approximately 90 minutes in duration. Lunch is at guests own expense; bring Australian dollars or a major credit card for any purchases.
