Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

A great experience from booking to end of tour. The staff went. Out of their way to advise on difficult access, to organise close pickups and the tour guide/driver was helpful, informed commentary, and pleasant Most enjoyable and adaptable when snow blocked our way. We especially enjoyed the drive around the narrow streets of Hobart and the informed stories of the past.

Really enjoyed this tour. The coach driver was very informative about the history of Hobart as he drove us all around. He got us back to the pier in plenty of time to catch the ferry to MONA. That was amazing. Not like any other museum or art gallery that we had ever been to. We had three hours there and it was not long enough to do the place justice. However what no-one pointed out to us, until we saw the sign while waiting for the ferry, is that from the pier on MONA's side it is 99 steps up to the museum itself. Apparently there is a shuttle if one is unable to climb the steps but that probably needs to be arranged beforehand.

Great consideration for those unable to manage the stairs with alternative arrangements. Seating required in the various sections is really a must.

The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the morning city tour. The Mona is interesting. Each persons taste differs so I would leave it to each person to decide if they like it. The time provided at Mona was too long, but it was easy to change the ferry ticket for the return.

Hobart City Sightseeing Tour & MONA

An amazing tour of beautiful Hobart and it's surrounds with it's quaint and historic buildings and the gorgeous botanical gardens. We learnt so much from our wonderfully informative tour guide Greg, whilst onboard the Hobart Explorer tram. Greg is truly an overflowing fountain of Tasmanian knowledge. Then, we were on the short river cruise to MONA, which offered such beautiful coastal scenery.MONA is an extraordinary and fun place to visit, gets the imaginative juices flowing and allows for many laughs along the way. All in all, we had a truly memorable and exciting holiday visiting one of Australia's most spectacular places. We can't wait to return for more great experiences :)

Staff were great, sight seeing tour was ok but raining so missed out on Cascade Gardens and got wet at the Botanical Gardens. View from lookout was amazing but very chilly. Mona Ferry was excellent and the Museum very interesting only you could not take you bag or water, got a good workout as the lift did not work and hundreds of steps.
