Iron Pot Cruises – Pennicott Wilderness Journeys

Join Pennicott Wilderness Journeys for a two-and-a-half-hour cruise exploring the beautiful waterways of Hobart and learn about the city’s maritime history. Departing Franklin Wharf on the waterfront, you are part of a small group of up to twelve.

Cruise down the River Derwent pass historic Battery Point, the iconic Wrest Point Casino and the Shot Tower at Taroona before heading to the ‘Iron Pot’, Australia’s oldest lighthouse. The origins of this lighthouse are steeped in tragedy, with frequent shipwrecks resulting in an outcry from the settlement. The unique square spire is a testament to convict construction, still standing more than 150 years later. Today the Iron Pot is well known as the final turn in the famous Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, regarded as one of the most gruelling sailing events in the world.

Continuing on we pass the point where the River Derwent meets Storm Bay before reaching Betsey Island, an uninhabited island that is home to a variety of seabirds, including the majestic white-bellied sea eagle. Rounding the far side of Betsey Island, Hope Beach comes into view.
