Cruise ship tours

Hello and welcome to our Cruise Ship Page.

This season there are approximately 15 ships coming into the Burnie Port, while there are about 40 coming into Hobart.

Burnie is the sea port to North-west Tasmania with a population of 20, 000 people, and the main icon to this region is Cradle Mountain.

There is a free shuttle bus , that will pick you up off the wharf and bring you about 1 kilometre to the Burnie Information Centre, where all the smaller tour operators work from, and I operate where you see the Cradle Mountain Booth..

This Cradle Mountain iconic tour encompasses a loop drive from Burnie to Cradle, then onto Sheffield and back along the coast to Burnie.

Your day will run sweetly as we head off to the Burnie Lookout, where one gets a brief discription of the area and take a photo of your ship.It takes about 70 minutes to arrive at the Cradle Mt. Information Centre for a stretch and a quick coffee stop.We then head into the park and go to a rainforest walk at Waldheime. The walk is lucky to be 300 metres, but well worth the stroll, especially for photographers. We then drive over to Dove Lake carpark,at the base of the famous Cradle Mountain. A small walk to the lake and or walk around to Crater Rock will take about 30 minutes, before we head off to Sheffield, the town of Murals. Next, a small stop for eats and toilets, before driving through the best vegetable growing region in Australia , ending up at Braddons Lookout, taking up a view of the Forth River Valley, and coastline.From here we follow the coastline back to Burnie, passing through Ulverstone and the famous Penguin village.
Depending on time, I have the facility to take you back down onto the wharf to your ship and wish you bon voyage.

There are two great trips on offer.
1)Port Arthur.
This tour starts with a drive over the Tasman Bridge and onto Rosny Lookout where a photographic shot of your ship can take place, and continue around the foreshore looking at some Real Estate.We head out of Hobart taking about 70 minutes to get to Pirates Bay for a photo, and head into the Port Arthur Convict Settlement, where you will take about a 2 hour stay ,exploring the grounds. The longer we stay here the shorter the views as we head back to Hobart.Once we leave , we head to Doo Town, where we visit The Tasman Arch and Blow-hole.Then it’s back to Richmond Village, calling into the oldest Catholic Church in Australia , as well as the old Convict Built Bridge, before heading back to your ship some 20 minutes away.

2)Hobart / Russell Falls /and Bonorong Wildlife Park or Richmond Village.
All depending on the weather conditions, it may go like this.
We do a small drive through Salamanca , Battery Point, and then head up to the top of Mount Wellington for a fantastic view over Hobart and the Derwent River Valley. We then drive about an hour away through the valley to Mount Field National Park to visit Russell Falls ,only a 10 minute stroll away. A cuppa and toilet stop usually happens , before heading back to Bonorong Wildlife Park, or onto Richmond Village, to view the oldest Catholic Church and Convict built bridge,before heading back to your ship.

All trips can be changed to cater for the groups interests and requests.

All the day trips are $150 p/p and where an entrance fee is required, that is at your expense…Port Arthur $35 approx. and Bonorong $25.

We will do our best to make it an enjoyable day to remember..

Please get in early and book to avoid disappointment, and if you enjoy, go back on Cruise Critic and tell the WORLD.
