Tour Hobart's historic streets and charming neighborhoods before reaching the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) for an afternoon spent exploring its remarkable exhibits. Admire grand architecture, visit expansive gardens, and see Australia's largest private collection of art and artifacts. Start your tour in Hobart's marine district, where sailboats bob in Sullivan's Cove. Head into the city aboard your comfortable coach and cruise past stately government buildings, charming boutique-lined streets, and imposing Gothic churches.
Take in some history with a stop at the 200-year-old Anglesea military barracks. Continue on to the Female Factory - a long-shuttered women's prison that's now a UNESCO World Heritage site, and pop in for a look at the oldest brewery in Australia.
Heading north, stop at the Royal Tasmania Botanical Gardens, where you can enjoy a stroll through native and exotic flora. Finish your morning with a photo opportunity at Rosny Hill.
Arrive at the MONA and enjoy lunch if you'd like at The Source Restaurant (additional cost). Spend the afternoon wandering halls filled with ancient relics and contemporary pieces, aided by informational iPads that track your progress. Experience the contrast between antiquities like an Egyptian sarcophagus and modern macabre sculptures as wind through this bizarre yet highly celebrated collection. End this fabulous tour by ferry, with a scenic cruise back to town on the Derwent River. The tour concludes with return ferry to Brooke Street Pier.
