Macquarie Wharf Cruise Ship Terminal (Hobart Cruise Port)

Hobart, Australia

The Basics

Walkable Hobart is easily explored on foot on just one day, ideal for first-time visitors. Head out independently direct from ship or opt for guided tours of the Tasmanian capital to learn more about its colonial and aboriginal past, explore the city’s pubs, or go gin-tasting. Shore excursions are also available, with destinations such as Port Arthur (the former penal colony), Bruny Island, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, and kunanyi (Mount Wellington). Some excursions combine some or all the above and more.
