This time of year is perfect for a ride through historic Hobart with Heritage Horse Drawn Carriages. Located right in the heart of Hobart, experienced horse owners Sharon and Steve and their beautiful horses are providing wonderful tours for families around the Waterfront, Salamanca and Battery Point. Their horses are their family and their welfare is paramount. Come along and meet the team and, as a family, enjoy a jaunt (ride) during the day or at twilight.
We especially love how Sharon and Steve make their jaunts affordable for everyone. They don’t price their tours per person, but base it on the tour you take. There are different tours – one for every time schedule and budget. You can also customise your tours. The carriage comfortably sits 4-5 adults, or 2 adults and 4 children. Contact Sharon and Steve direct for custom tours, or for options with a larger group.
The award winning Heritage Horse Drawn Carriages offers the following Jaunts:
Salamanca Jaunts: A jaunt around the iconic Salamanca Place, past majestic Parliament House and onto Franklin Wharf and Constitution Dock. A great tour for families. Photos mandatory! Children are welcome to pat their horses and maybe even sit up with the driver for a photo. Salamanca Jaunts run for around 15-20 minutes and cost $60.00 per tour.
Waterfront Jaunts: Passing through the bustling Hobart waterfront over to the historic stone IXL building and the Cruise Terminals, this jaunt gives you a real appreciation of Hobart’s connection to the sea and the mountains with Mt Wellington looming behind the city. Some lucky passengers even get to spot the resident harbour seal! One thing is certain, you’ll see lots of happy and excited faces and people waving to you as you pass them by! The Waterfront by night is just beautiful. A 30 minute tour which costs $80.00 per tour.
Not only do we endeavour to meet your special requests, we are happy to have guests with any special needs. A carriage ride is an experience everybody, regardless of ability, is able to enjoy and remember. Please feel free to call us and let us know your situation.
