You book your accommodation and we will look after the sightseeing. Two days of tours, one day you choose what you would like to do! Perhaps you are an art enthusiast and want to visit MONA or if you love nature then Bonerong Wildlife Sanctuary will be the place to visit. You will be introduced to all the native wildlife. The other day will be a tour of beautiful Bruny Island. Here you will see pristine beaches, coastlines, and national parks. If that is not enough, you will also get to sample some of the finest produce in the land!
Day One - The best of Hobart.
Bonorong and or
Salamanca Market (Saturday's only)
Wicked Cheese (free cheese tasting)
Whilst the streets are quiet, we will take you on a city highlights tour en route to Hobart’s spectacular backdrop, Kunanyi (Mt. Wellington). Breathe in the famous pristine Tasmanian air as we drive up the 1272m to the pinnacle where you will be greeted by the very best view of Hobart and surrounds. After you take that perfect Instagram worthy selfie, you would have no doubt worked up an appetite! It is now time for Salamanca Market (Saturday only). This world class market offers the best of Tassie culture - art, produce, buskers, souvenirs, beverages and much more!
After 90 minutes of exploring the market, we will make our way to Richmond. An iconic township rich in convict history, sandstone and colonial buildings and home to Australia’s oldest bridge and catholic church. The afternoon presents you with two options. The first is Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary where you can hand feed kangaroos and get up close and personal with all the unique Tasmanian and Australian wildlife, including the famous Tasmanian Devil - an absolute highlight (even for a local!).
Entry cost $26.00pp
The second option is MONA Museum - the largest privately owned museum in the southern hemisphere! Known and loved for its quirky and strange art, this museum also offers restaurants and bars that showcase their local wine and Tasmanian produce. Enjoy wandering around this amazing world renowned museum of old and new art.
***Note: MONA is currently closed during the COVID-19 pandemic***
Entry cost $28.00pp
If both options sound equally appealing, we are happy to cater for both! This will incur an additional fee of $22.00 fee which will include your ferry back to the city where you will make your own way back to your accommodation.
Day Two - Bruny Island
Arguably Tasmania's best day trip! At the end of this day, you will understand why the tourist numbers have doubled in the past 4 years! Bruny Island has a little bit of everything mainland Tasmania has - world class beaches, national parks, rugged coastline and native wildlife matched with the finest local produce from the ocean and the land.
