Meet your guide outside the Henry Jones Art Hotel, 25 Hunter St Hobart on the waterfront, and then set off on your 2-hour walking tour to explore streets, buildings, people and history of Hobart. Elegant heritage listed buildings are in abundance on our tour route, and as you walk, your guide will point the details of our beautiful, well-preserved Georgian and Victorian architecture.
You’ll enjoy the stories of the colonial beginnings of city, detailing the troubles and successes the British settlers experienced, as well as stories of the Indigenous people of the area and their responses to British invasion. We’ll continue our walk through time and into town working our way up to the seat of power housing church, court and prison. Stroll with us through a city centre park and be delighted – and amazed – at the statues and the stories behind them.
We'll then head down to another lovely park with a dark secret that many of the locals still don’t know about. Finally we’ll arrive at Salamanca Place – world famous for its Saturday markets, the oldest markets in Australia. Your guide will be happy to direct you to some of our favourite cafés for a reviving coffee after the tour.
