Your tour will cover the history of Hobart’s wild colonial days and the fascinating role alcohol consumption played in the growth of the city. Also you'll discover the contemporary story of how Hobart is now the centre of the universe for world class wine, spirits and craft cider.  This is a delicious 2 hour walking tour of Hobart with a friendly, knowledgeable guide and the tour will conclude at Salamanca Place.

As you walk, your guide will regale you with stories of the wild colonial days full of rum, corruption and scandal - and a lot of fun!
