Overview

Spend the day at Moorilla Estate for a unique Tasmanian winery experience that includes world-class art. You’ll start with a ferry ride and admission to Mona (the Museum of Old and New Art), known as much for its underground labyrinth-like architecture as for its art collection. Then enjoy a seasonal lunch, followed by a tasting and behind-the-scenes tour at Moorilla Estate, which continues to make ‘best of’ lists since it opened in 2011.
  • Moorilla Estate winery tour and tasting with admission to Mona and round-trip ferry from Hobart
  • Discover the architectural wonder that was built underground to house Mona (Museum of Old and New Art)
  • Sample 10 different wines after a tour that explains the winemaking process from vineyard to bottle
  • Hear commentary from the ferry captain during the ride to the winery, and check out the onboard sculpture collection
Your tour starts at the Mona Ferry Terminal in Hobart for the 30-minute ferry ride along the River Derwent (when booking, select a ferry departure time, which determines how long you’ll be at the estate). During the ride, take in the custom-designed ferry’s interesting interior touches, from a cow sculpture to seats shaped like sheep.

Home to art and artifacts from Walsh’s private collection, the museum boasts a variety of items, from Greek coins to Egyptian mummies to daring modern art. Just as noteworthy is the design of Mona itself, an architectural stunner built mostly underground with 64,550 square feet (6,000 square meters) of exhibition space laid out like a labyrinth, which you can explore at your leisure.

Next, head to Source Restaurant for lunch. Enjoy any main meal, paired with a glass of wine from Moorilla’s Muse or Praxis Series and sweeping views of the vineyard, Derwent River, and Mount Wellington.

Continue with a behind-the-scenes tour and wine tasting in the vineyard, the second oldest in Tasmania. Learn how the grapes are handpicked, crushed, pressed, fermented, and matured, and how new and old artisan winemaking techniques are used to craft fragrant, elegant wines. Your host will provide an overview of the history of the region and winery, as well as information on the different grape varieties grown on site. The tasting features ten wines, including a selection from Moorilla’s prestigious Cloth Label Series.

When your time at Moorilla is up, catch the 5pm return ferry to Hobart.

MONA EXPERIENCE

Unfortunately we did not go to Moorilla as we spent too much time at MONA. Mona is awesome, fascinating, thought provoking and an amazing experience. Having pre-booked tickets and ferry was great. I am sure Moorilla would have also been great but we opted to miss this, as we had been to many wineries previously but there is only one Mona.

This was a birthday gift for our two Adult Children on a mountain biking holiday. They report that it was an absolutely excellent day with no complaints. Text photo's of the meal confirms that it too was excellent. All in all a great day relaxing before hitting the trails again.

Great day

This package was a great combination of ferry, MONA admission, delicious lunch, and fun wine tasting. Really nice collection of activities and I would definitely do it again. One thing I'd mention is that this really isn't a tour - all of the activities are self-guided and the only time you're with others on a tour is during the wine tasting, otherwise you're on your own. This may be exactly what you're hoping for, or different than what you expected. All in all, a great day!

MONA is a one-of-a-kind museum in every respect. There is a tremendous amount to see, so give yourself maximum time in the Museum. This is not an organized tour, meaning that there is not a guide and you do not spend time with other travelers. The MONA staff explain how to enter the museum and they are helpful. The restaurant and starting point for the winery tour are in the same location - a separate building just behind the museum building.

I have been to a lot if different museums, but this one is quite unique. Loved the ferry ride over as it was a beautiful day. The lunch included at the wine bar was superb. Not sure if the time allowed for wine tasting is quite enough. Would go back to Museum again!

Winery tour was a good intro to the history of the estate and workings of winemaking which was an eye opener. Guide Dave was friendly and we tasted some wines straight out of the barrel and tanks! Lunch consisted of cold cuts which was not great and art work was too eclectic.

Unfortunately our tickets were not available as they should have been at the ferry terminal. This caused some frustrating delays which we were told was the fault of the company we booked with, Viator! Once we got that sorted out the rest of the trip went smoothly including the lunch which was delicious. We decided against the winery tour and returned on the 3 o'clock ferry it's a long day with lots of walking and steep steps.
