Tasmania’s Hobart And port Arthur

Experience the best of Hobart & Port Arthur

Hobart is for the curious visitor.

Then experience the powerful sense of Australia’s past convict era at the Port Arthur Historic Site.

Destination Highlights

Hobart

Hobart is humming – it’s Tasmania’s lively capital that retains an old town salty-air feel. This slower pace, once the chuckle of Australian city counterparts, has now become an endearing drawcard. Boutique hotels are filled to the brim and visitors are flocking to this harbour-side city in numbers not seen. What’s all the fuss? It’s probably because you can have early morning sand between your toes, wander city streets, head to a mountain summit and be back in time for cocktails on the waterfront. This compact capital is a liveable city. A vibrant city. A place where people still say hello – their relaxed pace now on trend in a busy world.

Port Arthur

Experience the powerful sense of Australia’s past convict era and of the early settlement heritage that the Port Arthur Historic Site evokes. Sitting tranquilly amidst English oaks and gardens, it is a harsh contrast to the beauty of the Tasman Peninsula.

Described by its owner David Walsh as a “subversive adult Disneyland”, MONA is Australia’s largest private museum and one of the most controversial private collections of modern art and antiquities in the world. This unique and provocative art collection will leave a lasting impression with visitors as they explore 3 floors of subterranean architecture, art pieces, and exhibits.

Mona Foma, Tasmania, Australia.  This 3.5 ha site includes the Source restaurant, a function centre, Moorilla winery and vineyard, a cellar door, wine bar, cinema, library, and accommodation pavilions (and Moo Brew, an off-site brewery).
