Home – Hobart
Our tour begins with a morning flight into Hobart arriving around midday. Purchase some lunch on your flight or at the airport. Boarding our coach, our first visit is to Australia’s largest private museum, MONA–The Museum of Old and New Art where you can browse the exhibits. Later we will settle into our accommodation for the next four nights.

Mt Wellington, Female Factory, Cascade Brewery
The tour of the city this morning starts at sea level and will culminate at 1,271m above it, on top of Mt Wellington (weather permitting). On the return journey, experience a tour of the
Cascade Female Factory, where you’ll learn the stories of female convicts from the 1800s. Close by is the Cascade Brewery, where we will enjoy lunch followed by a tour. Please note that

Today we take the short ferry ride to Bruny Island. The island is steeped in history, discovered by Abel Tasman in 1642, later visited by Captains Cook, Cox, Bligh and d’Entrecasteaux. Visit the museum where much of this history is recorded. Take in the superb coastal scenery along Adventure Bay where white wallabies, echidnas and birds may be seen.

After a unique day, we return to Hobart where the evening is at your leisure and you can purchase your dinner at one of the many local restaurants.

Our touring today will take the old coastline road to Kingston, with a stop at Joseph Moir’s Shot Tower. Built in 1870, and at 58 metres tall it is still one of the tallest buildings in Tasmania. Visit the Wooden Boat Centre in Franklin, a unique school which is still teaching the art of boat building. Next stop is The Apple Shed where we will enjoy a cider tasting prior to lunch, which of course includes good old fashioned apple pie! This afternoon, during a talk and tasting, you will hear about the wide range of products at Grandvewe Cheeses.
