Itinerary

  • 1 Hobart

    Arrive in Hobart at your leisure today for 3 nights stay at the lovely 4-star Movenpick Hotel. Located right in the city centre it is walking distance to everything including the Hobart waterfront & Salamanca areas. For those traveling between November – April a great Friday night activity option is the Franco Eat Street Markets with great food, drink and live music in beautiful Franklin Square only 2 minutes walk from your city hotel.

    Accommodation: Movenpick Hotel Hobart or similar

  • 2 Salamanca Markets & MONA or Lunch Cruise (B)

    No need to hurry or pack your things for checkout this morning as there is another 2 nights stay included at these lodgings. After a delicious hot breakfast we have some great activities organised for your Saturday… but being self guided you are on your own time schedule and can move at your own pace!

    Lets begin with a morning at the famous Salamanca markets only a 5 minute stroll from your hotel. Wander the rows of market stalls displaying woodwork, arts & craft, fresh produce, coffee, wine, cooked foods and more. This is Tasmania’s most famous market and operates every Saturday for the entire year. Salamanca also has a fantastic collection of convict built sandstone buildings connected by narrow laneways, staircases and interesting little spaces. In addition to the markets Salamanca area has fantastic art galleries, cafes and retail stores. You are free to wander the markets & surrounds at your leisure… perhaps a wander across the dock area or up into the quaint suburb of Battery Point? When feels appropriate for you a short wander to Brooke Street Pier will lead to the departure terminal for your choice of 2 afternoon activities:

    Option 1) MONA Museum. The Museum of Old & New Art has become one of Tasmania’s premier attractions over the last 10 years and is a real cultural adventure. The MONA ferry will transport you via a comfortable and scenic 25 minute fast boat cruise up the Derwent River to the museum. There is some fantastic viewing of Hobart and the harbour area along the ferry journey.

    At MONA you will encounter one of the most unique and fascinating buildings in Australia. The MONA complex features beautiful vineyards, 2 restaurants, a hotel and lovely garden areas adorned with sculptures above ground. The majority of the gallery however is actually below the surface – excavated into the sandstone rock. As you wander the quirky tunnels and pathways of the museum you can spot many areas of exposed sandstone suggesting you are underground. It is certainly one of the unique cultural experiences in Tasmania.

    One can very easily spend an entire afternoon at the MONA complex and we’d suggest allowing plenty of time to absorb the vibes and stop for a snack or drinks at one of the cafe’s/bars on location. The ferries depart for Hobart hourly so you can return to your city lodgings whenever you feel so inclined.

    Option 2) A 90min river cruise with the reputed ‘Hobart Historic Cruises’ including lunch provided onboard. Departing at 12.15pm this lovely scenic cruise will take you in both North & South directions on the river passing famous locations such as The Botanical Gardens, Government House, under the Tasman Bridge, Sandy Bay and the Wrest Point Casino before finally sailing over to the eastern Shore area. It’s a fantastic way to see Hobart’s stunning harbour while providing some great photo opportunities. Entertaining commentary along the way will educate you on some interesting facts about Hobart city and the landmarks you are passing.

    Being Saturday, tonight is a great opportunity to wander down into the dock or Salamanca areas for dinner and evening entertainment. There are dozens of restaurants within comfortable walking distance including some very indulgent dessert options for those with a sweet tooth.

Tour Reviews

Even though I had previously visited Tasmania I discovered lots more to see. The itinerary had variety along with comfortable accommodation and good food accompanied by informative commentary. I enjoyed the history, wine and food tastings and walks in the spectacular National Parks and along the beach. Morgan always ensured there was an alternate activity for those unable to walk too far. He was helpful at all times in many different ways. Well Done! Gaye McKay

The scenery was spectacular, and the places we visited were very interesting, from lakes and mountains to seahorses. Roberts knowledge of everything was much appreciated, as was the afternoon tea and biscuits! The food was great as was the company of the other travellers. This is a tour for singles or couples who like something a bit different. Definitely recommended. Pam W

Attended the 6 day group tour with Robert as our guide. I had been to Hobart several times and wanted to see more of Tasmania without having to do all of the homework and planning. This was a wonderful trip that touched on areas like Cradle Mountain, Launceston, and small mining towns on the west coast. The planning and schedule was seamlessly run and chosen accommodation was very comfortable. The real value for me on the tour was being able to enjoy my surroundings without having my head stuck in a map and it was also fun to travel with others as I am normally a solo traveller. Also, it was quite obvious how much enthusiasm and knowledge Robert had for the different areas. His introduction to the various places we visited always put us in very good stead with the owners and operators of the different establishments. Would thoroughly recommend this tour for anyone who likes to see a lot but wants a break from planning it all themselves. I’ve had plenty of experience planning itineraries for myself and this was a much more enjoyable and less stressful way to enjoy my holiday 🙂 Laura Santiago
