Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Hobart City Sightseeing Tour Including MONA Admission

Royal Tasmania Botanical Gardens

City tour:
Your Hobart sightseeing tour introduces you to the major landmarks, historical attractions and popular neighborhoods that make up the Tasmanian capital.

See Salamanca Place with its Georgian warehouses, Constitution and Victoria docks along the waterfront, the Royal Tasmania Botanical Gardens and the charming houses of Battery Point. Enjoy a coastal view of Wrest Point Casino and Sandy Bay, stop by Anglesea Barracks, admire the Georgian façade of St George’s Church and drive through South Hobart at the foot of Mt Wellington. Other sights include Parliament House, the Treasury Building, St David’s Cathedral, the remnants of the old Female Factory prison and the gardens of the Cascade Brewery. Plus, cross the River Derwent on the Tasman Bridge, and visit the Rosny Hill lookout for a view of the city, Mt Wellington and Glenarchy.

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.

Nice overall tour of the town.Beautiful in every respect. Got an idea of the various neighborhoods and part of the history. The highlight of the tour was the visit to Mona museum. 4 hours spent there were not enough . The museum is a must for every visitor although some may not like part of the exhibits. Hobart was a big surprise and I wish I could visit the place again.

Overall, this was a good tour. However, Hobart itself is somewhat small. MONA itself is worth the price. Great ferry ride to MONA.

Unfortunately it was a very wet day that I took this tour but in saying that it was very good and informative and tour guide Elise was very good. The ferry ride to Mona was excellent though I was not impressed by the gallery at all. The structure and the idea is excellent but the exhibits were not to my liking nor understanding. This is no reflection on the tour provider just my personal opinion of the gallery.
