Things you never knew about Hobart

We walked around the harbor and heard about very early settlement in Hobart. The stories were really interesting and gave us an idea of what it might have been like. We were shown older buildings and were able to enter two that were fun for very different reasons. We felt it was good value and a great way to be introduced to early Hobart and her characters.

This 90 minute walking tour, with a group of just 5 of us, was conducted at a sensible pace and gave a good overview of the city's history. The guide was interesting and knowledgeable, also considerate to the needs of the partially sited member of our group. Thoroughly recommended.
