Full-Day Tasman Peninsula Tour from Hobart

Likely To Sell Out
Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your day trip from Hobart starts with the approximate 1.5-hour drive by coach to the Tasman Peninsula, during which your guide will point out sights and provide commentary. Stop for morning tea, and then embark on your 3-hour cruise, taking in the stunning coastline of Tasman National Park.

    Stare up at some of Australia’s tallest sea cliffs, enter deep sea caves, spot the lighthouse that guards Storm Bay, and keep your eyes open for seals and dolphins. With the boat’s covered open-air seating, you’ll have great viewing opportunities of the sea and shore.

    When you return to land, enjoy lunch before spending the afternoon on a tour with your guide to peninsula attractions such as Remarkable Cave, the Federation Chocolate Factory and Port Arthur lavender Farm (alternatively, upgrade your ticket to include either the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park or Port Arthur Historic Site instead). Your day trip ends with the drive back to Hobart.

    Upgrade Sightseeing Options

    You can’t see everything in one day, but you can try! Customize the sightseeing to suit you. Instead of visiting local attractions like Remarkable Cave, Federation Chocolate Factory and Port Arthur lavender Farm you can choose one of these upgrade options:

    Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park:

    Get an up-close look at these iconic Australian animals at this wildlife center that features a free-flight bird show and a chance to watch feeding time for the Tasmanian devils.

    Port Arthur Historic Site:

    This former penal colony, part of the Australian Convict Sites UNESCO World Heritage site, is home to several old structures and ruins that were once home to prisoners, officers and guards. You have three hours to spend here learning about Australia’s penal history amid the landscaped grounds.

    I wanted to see the area where the Sydney Hobart Yacht race rounds the Island and you see those amazing photos of boats in the foreground of "Tubelike" cliff faces. This tour provided that and so much more. They were a very professional operation and we felt safe at all times.

    This was a 10-hour tour. When we arrived, the road to the reception was closed to commercial traffic, but we were early, before 7:00 am, and there was plenty of parking at that hour and it was free. No public toilets and the restaurants don't want you using theirs. We'll

    We did the full day cruise and sightseeing. Our guides Michael and Ange were amazing, so knowledgeable and very service orientated. Ange is a wildlife rescuer and went to check on an injured White Bellied Sea Eagle and was returning later to pick it up after dropping us off.

    We had a great time on the all day trip to Tasman Peninsula- Tom our van driver was very knowledgeable and our boat tour guides were fun and funny! Didn’t see much wildlife but probably the time of year. Still highly recommend this trip.

    I thoroughly enjoyed all three tours exploring Tassie's islands and southern Tasmania. We were exposed to weather while being well protected from it. Commentary was professional - not overdone, it gave me a taste of Tasmanian history and resilience.
