Old Hobart Pub Tour

Characters, pubs, alleys and ales… join us for a tour of Hobart’s intriguing history of watering holes.

oin your local Tasmanian guide on an exciting journey through 200 alcohol-soaked years of enterprise, hardship and hilarious tales and stories at some of our old waterfront taverns, pubs and bars.

This tour is not only for guests who fancy a drink along the way.  There’s no obligation to buy a drink at any of the pubs we visit.  It’s up to you to decide if you would like to quench your thirst as you listen to your friendly guide interpret stories of old Hobart town…

Guest feedback on our Old Hobart Pub Tour

Hilarious stories and great historic pubs! Rob, Melbourne

Our guide was thoroughly entertaining with her tales of not only the buildings but the characters of our past. Great way to start an evening and as the tour finishes at Salamanca Place it leaves you with many options for dinner. Highly recommended! Julie, Melbourne

Couldn’t have been better! Much more than a pub tour, it was an excellent glimpse into the lifestyle of early Hobart and the interesting characters of the times. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very patiently answered all our questions. Great fun even if you aren’t a drinker. Joanne, Brisbane
