Meet your guide at Brooke Street Pier in Hobart and start your drive to Mt Wellington. As you go up the mountain, view the massive rock formation of Organ Pipes. Once at the summit, take in a panoramic spectacle of Hobart City, surrounding suburbs, and the vast waterways of the Derwent River. Next, enjoy a short, guided walk at the summit to the observatory. Start your descent from the mountain, and visit the classic Cascade Gardens for a stroll while viewing the stunning exterior of the iconic Cascade Brewery and the Female Factory. View the former female prison for an insight into the lives of the women convicts once imprisoned there. Returning to the Hobart waterfront, jump on board a ferry from Sullivans Cove and cruise along the Derwent River to MONA. Once at the museum, observe ancient, modern, and contemporary art and thought-provoking exhibits. Explore the museum at your own pace with a handheld touch screen device that assists your learning of the exhibits. Following a sensory overload, take in the beautiful surroundings of the museum, and enjoy a meal at the Source Restaurant, Museum Cafe, or the Wine Bar (at your own expense). Finish the day with a return cruise back to Brooke Street Pier in Hobart.
