Went on City explorer hop on hop off bus. Great day visiting sites of Hobart, getting off and on when you wanted. Also really enjoyed Cascade Brewery tour. Excellent that bus drops you off and picks you up. Lots of fun and sites

Continues to confirm, these hop-on hop-off tours are an excellent way of getting an overview of a city. The commentary is excellent, the freedom to get off and rejoin etc make it very worthwhile

I think that it is okay to wait till you get there as you can then decide, depending on the weather, which day you wish to travel. There will be no problem getting a ticket either at the Travel Centre or via Red Decker.
