Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour includes the view from Mt Wellington, MONA museum admission, and a ride on the Derwent River ferry.
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.

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.

Both the trip up to the mountain and the MONA visit were amazing, I would really recommend this tour. The guide was nice and friendly but said herself that she wasn't good at remembering facts so I didn't feel I could trust all the information she gave.
