Our itinerary takes you to the best vantage points in and around Hobart. We commence at Kangaroo Point, which is one of three old forts with gun batteries overlooking the harbour. The defensive batteries were built in the 19th century and have some of the best views of the river and harbour.
We travel on to Rosny Point taking in a panoramic view of the western shore of Hobart and its surrounds.
We then head towards the city and West Hobart which looks down over the CBD from the other western side of the river. and on to the second of the old colonial forts, Alexander Battery in Sandy Bay. It has great views down river towards the Southern Ocean.
On the way to Mount Nelson we detour to the top of Sandy Bay and take in the views towards the Tasman Bridge. At the Mount Nelson lookout we explore the signal station commissioned by Governor Macquarie in 1811 which helped guide ships through the River Derwent using the old British naval semaphore signalling system.
Returning to Hobart we take a brief tour of Battery Point seeing the third old fort at Princes Park. It is the site of the only other remaining semaphore station from the 1800's.
From here we can return you to your City accommodation.
