Take the family to explore Hobart and Melbourne onboard Voyager of the Seas in your Oceanview stateroom.
In the early 1800s, the British turned to Tasmania, an expansive island off Australia’s southern coast, to establish a penal colony. Known as Van Diemen’s Land back then, Tasmania is now a popular cruise destination in its own right. Much of its vast wild areas are part of a network of wildlife reserves, and cities like Port Arthur and Hobart have deep histories.
Hobart: Most Tasmania cruises overnight in the island’s capital city of Hobart—Australia’s oldest city after Sydney—since there is a lot of ground to cover here. This beautiful waterfront is at the foothills of Mount Wellington and at the mouth of the Derwent River. You can stroll the waterfront; enjoy the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery or Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens; visit the craft shops, restaurants, and outdoor market of nearby Salamanca Place; or head to the beach or mountains.
