Welcome Aboard!

On behalf of TasPorts and Open House Hobart, it gives us great pleasure to welcome you onboard the Peppermint Bay II for the inaugural Tour with TasPorts.

Join us for a 45-minute cruise as TasPorts shares with you behind-the-scenes insights into one of Australia’s most iconic working ports.

The Port of Hobart is Australia’s second oldest port and the birthplace of modern Tasmania. Today, the Port supports a variety of industries, including a vibrant Antarctic exploration community, commercial fishing fleet, bulk fuel imports, bulk log exports, as well as tourism, public events, and cruise.

Your Tour with TasPorts begins at Brooke Street Pier, and is hosted by The Gents, Brady Michaels and Dale Campisi. From here, we will tour along Sullivan’s Cove, with its historic docks, wharves, and piers. Next, we will travel north past TasPorts’ Port Tower and security-regulated port areas. We will then set sail past Huon Quays and Domain Slipyard, under the Tasman Bridge to Selfs Point Fuel Terminal, before returning to Brooke Street Pier.

Along the way, you will view landside operations from the water while learning more about how a modern port operates, our marine safety activities, and future plans for this iconic port. We might even catch the Yandeyarra and Mount Florance tugs or the Kelly pilot boat in action!
