Mount Wellington day tours

MONA with Mt Wellington & Ferry Return
Gray Line Day Tour 775MC

Locally known as 'The Mountain', the scenic drive to the summit of Mt Wellington unfolds into a magnificent splendour of panoramic vistas over the city. Then travel to MONA with its compelling display of art and architecture before returning to Hobart by ferry.

Reach the summit of Mt Wellington, where waiting before you is the magnificent views of the Derwent River lying next to the historically significant city of Hobart. The panoramic views of the city will have you not wanting to leave. With 'The Mountain' right at the doorstep of Hobart, your tour of Mt Wellington finishes in the morning allowing the rest of the day to explore MONA's art, architecture and perhaps take in some wine or beer tasting at their in-house brewery and winery.
