Start planning your cruise and book your excursions to Hobart
Hobart, the capital city of the Australian state of Tasmania, is home to ancient Aboriginal tribes that have resided on the island for at least 35,000 years. Showcasing rolling hills, lush natural parks, colonial architecture, and protected heritage sites, this MSC World Cruise destination is not to be missed!
MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including:
• Bruny Island
• Mt Wellington
• Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary
Tour the extraordinary landscapes of Bruny Island on an MSC Cruises excursion. Here, you’ll see fur seals, fairy penguins, white wallabies, and an array of beautiful seabirds. Explore spectacular stretches of the Neck Lookout isthmus, joining the northern and southern parts of the island. Then, stroll the shores of Adventure Bay before following the path to the enchanting Grass Point.
In the southeast coastal region of Tasmania lies majestic Mount Wellington. On an MSC Cruises excursion, you’ll ascend to the mountain’s 1,271m summit to take in staggering views of the Derwent Valley. Admire vistas of the city and the atmospheric Southern Ocean. Capture photographs of the inlets, bays, and surrounding hills that envelop historical Hobart.
Take an MSC Cruises excursion to the incredible Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, where you’ll encounter koalas, wombats, kangaroos, wallabies, Tasmanian devils, quolls, snakes, and emus. Some of these creatures are extinct in other parts of Australia, so the conservation work performed by the animal carers is crucial. This fantastic social enterprise provides an eco-educational experience that the whole family will relish. Enjoy talks by keepers, hand-feed a sugar glider, and meet a selection of native critters!
