Sydney (AU) - Hobart (AU)

26 November - 03 December 2024

DARWIN200 Global Voyage: Leg 25. Sail from Sydney south along New South Wales’ dramatic coastline. Pass breath-taking beaches, remote coastal town and rocky headlands before crossing the Bass Strait to reach Tasmania and the historic port city of Hobart. Ashore, wander the city’s historic streets, colonial history and traditional pubs. Tasmania is a nature lover’s paradise, as well as being home to some of Australia’s finest vineyards and top restaurants.
There is no more Covid-19 protocol on board, but the participants must make sure that they comply with the rules of the countries visited during the Journeys.

Ports

Hobart is the capital city of the Australian island of Tasmania. Once there don't miss the spectacular views from Mount Wellington! Spend the day with exotic animals of the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary or among the plants in the botanical garden. If you're an art-lover the Museum of Old and New Art is a must-see. Follow the exciting day with a seafood dinner on the pier.
