Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Mt Wellington Tour and MONA Admission

MONA Museum Snake Wall

Start the day with a morning tour to the summit of Mount Wellington, capped with snow in winter and topped with alpine vegetation year-round. Enjoy spectacular panoramic views, taking in the city of Hobart and meandering the Derwent River, all the way to the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island on a clear day.

Your Mount Wellington tour also takes you to some of Hobart’s most popular sights, including St David's Park, the charming houses of Battery Point and Arthur's Circus, the historic Anglesea Barracks and Female Factory prison, the lovely homes of south Hobart and the Cascade Valley’s brewery and gardens.

Arrive at MONA by coach transfer admire the cutting-edge complex of modern buildings on your approach to the museum's entrance, then lose yourself in Australia’s largest privately funded gallery of ancient and modern artworks, collected and exhibited by Tasmanian-born entrepreneur David Walsh.

From mixed-media installations to 3D sculptures and Neolithic artifacts, be enthralled, inspired and sometimes confronted by this collection exploring the inner recesses of the human experience and psyche.

While viewing the collections, you can learn more about the exhibits via a hand-held touch-screen device, and interact by recording your own impressions and responses.

The collection is vast, so relax while you’re at MONA by visiting the museum’s restaurant, cafe or wine bar, with its cellar door highlighting the region's local wines (own expense).

Leaving MONA, take a scenic ferry ride along the Derwent River back to Hobart.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

This tour was brilliant and the tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Would highly recommend this!!!

4 star rating: Recommended September 2014

It was five star with Graham as our tour guide. We arrived on Mt Wellington just before the mist covered the wonderful view. We had a little bit of snow to enjoy. On the drive back to catch Mona boat we saw Cascade site and the Women's goal. Mona was an adventure and we were not sure about the "ART". Some it was very dark and some puzzling but it was thought provoking. Great day with 6 friends. Ta
