Hobart is the capital of Tasmania and on the south end of the island.
Where You're Docked
Cruise ships dock at Macquarie Wharf on the southeast part of the city. There are multiple piers in this area. A shuttle may be provided to take you a little bit closer to town if you're docked further out.
Money & Tipping
Australia's currency is the Australian dollar (AUD). Bills are plastic with coins for $2 and under. Australia has eliminated the penny and cash transactions are rounded up or down to the nearest nickel. Taxes are inclusive on sticker prices of items and tipping is not common. Money exchange can be done at any bank. When changing money, make sure you get a good rate and don't pay commission. ATM's are readily available. Tipping is not customary in Australia.
The Hobart Central Business District (CBD) is fairly small and can easily be explored on foot.
