This tour is designed to give you a taste of Tasmania in a short period of time. It begins with a trip to the top of the majestic Mt Wellington/kunanyi. See the spectacular views of Hobart, Australia’s southernmost capital city.

Learn about the life of female convicts who got sent to Van Dieman’s Land in the early 1800’s. The tour takes place in the ruins at the Cascades Female Factory.
