On this day tour you will experience two of Hobart's best attractions: MONA, the Museum of Old and New Art, and Mt Wellington, the magnificent backdrop to the city.

Start the day by heading up the 1271 metres to the summit of kunanyi/ Mt Wellington, the magnificent backdrop to Hobart City. Enjoy the stunning views of the city below and across southern Tasmania. If you are feeling a little adventurous take the Organ Pipes walk from the summit to check out the soaring dolerite columns. There are also some shorter options if you are looking for a more relaxed option. 

After you descend from the mountain you will have some free time at the Hobart waterfront to get some lunch before boarding the ferry to MONA. The iconic Museum of Old and New Art, described by its creator as a ‘subversive adult Disneyland’, is Tasmania’s most visited attraction. Check out the grounds, try out the trampoline and then head to the lowest level to work your way back up through the unique and sometimes controversial exhibitions.
