Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour starts as you depart Hobart for the drive up to the summit of Mt Wellington, topped with snow in the winter months and alpine vegetation all year. Take in wide vistas of the Hobart cityscape below, including the River Derwent and all the way out to the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island, if the weather is clear. During your coach drive, you’ll also see Hobart-area sights like Battery Point, Arthur’s Circus, St David’s Park, the historical Anglesea Barracks, the old Female Factory prison, the attractive homes of South Hobart, and the Cascade Valley brewery building.

When you arrive at MONA, located on the Berriedale peninsula on the property of a local winery, admire the museum’s contemporary exterior design before going inside to explore its art collection, owned and exhibited by David Walsh, a Tasmanian entrepreneur who has described the venue as a “subversive adult Disneyland.” Australia’s biggest privately funded museum, it’s home to everything from ancient artifacts to controversial mixed-media installations. If you feel at various times inspired, enthralled and shocked, you’re in good company.

If you get hungry or thirsty, head to the onsite restaurant, cafe or wine bar, with its tasting room that features regional wines (own expense). Then leave the museum to catch the ferry for a river cruise along the Derwent back to Hobart, where your tour ends.

A Great Day Out
vandaj914
, Jan 2020
On-time pick up by Mini Bus and guide Zac was very informative and helpful. Our day ran smoothly. Good to go up top of Kunyani early and we enjoyed great views, and the commentary on the way up and down. Great to take a stop by Cascade Brewery gardens and a quick peak inside the Female Factory included in the tour. The boat to and from MONA, and MONA itself was timely, and taking the 4pm boat back to town gave us enough time at the Museum. (Top Top: Pack a picnic and enjoy it on the grounds of MONA before you go in, (weather permitting) and dump your bag in MONA's free lockers)

Queenslanders visit to Hobart

My husband and I visited Hobart for the first time last week. We booked the tour to avoid having to drive on icy roads and were able to just sit back and take in the entire experience. Phil, our tour guide, picked us up from Wrest Pointl with enough time to grab a coffee before joining the rest of our group for the tour. Phil was knowledgable and spoke with a tone and pace that was easy to understand. He spoke the entire drive up and down the mountain and shared information and anecdotes about the local area in the way that a friend or family member living locally would have. We appreciated the small group size and Phil's attempts to ensure everyone felt included. After returning to Hobart, Phil escorted the group to the ticket desk to ensure that we all had our tickets for the return voyage on the ferry and for admission. Such a lovely, personal experience. We highly recommend this tour.

This was a very informative tour. Our guide told us the history of Hobart and pointed out significant sights. It was unfortunate that the clouds did not lift for us to see the view from Mt Wellington but it is still worth going up. We stopped by the Cascade Female Factory as well, however, you don't get a tour of it. Mona's art works aren't my cup of tea but I was really impressed with the building itself. You have to see Mona when in Hobart. We had plenty of time there. The tour was very well organised.

The tour to Wellington is good. We are lucky that it rained after we left the place. It will be better if we can go earlier and stay at the place longer.

Our driver Phil was great and gave us lots of information on Hobart and Mt Wellington. It's a wonderful view of Hobart and we were able to stop at the Female Factory. The ferry to MONA was nice. It was nice that you are able change the departure time at the gallery if you wanted to extend your stay.

Great experience but it was unfortunate that it was quite misty at the top so the views were not as good if the weather had been clear. Nice ride up to the top. Mona was brilliant and I could have spent a full day there. Very interesting and lots of unusual quirky exhibits. Great ride over on the hover craft.
