Summary

City tour: Your Hobart sightseeing tour introduces you to the major landmarks, historical attractions and popular neighborhoods that make up the Tasmanian capital. See Australia's oldest brewery at Cascade Gardens and visit the remnants of the old Female Factory prison; head to the Rosny Hill lookout for a view of the city, Mt. Wellington, the Derwent River; enjoy a stroll around the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, home to thousands of plant species, and much more. MONA: Your visit to MONA starts with the ferry ride along the River Derwent to the Berriedale peninsula, where the museum is located on the property of a local winery. Arriving by water is an important part of the MONA experience so you can fully appreciate its unique design and setting built into the landscape. After admiring the exterior architecture, head inside to explore the art collection, owned and exhibited by Tasmanian entrepreneur David Walsh, who has described the museum as a “subversive adult Disneyland.” Australia’s largest privately funded museum, it’s home to everything from ancient artifacts to controversial mixed-media installations. If you feel at various times enthralled, inspired and shocked, you’re in good company. Use a handheld touch-screen device while you’re exploring the collection to learn more about the exhibits and record your own impressions and reactions, if you wish. To refuel with a drink or bite to eat, you may head to the onsite restaurant, cafe or wine bar, with its tasting room that features regional wines (own expense). Then leave the museum to return to central Hobart by coach.
