If you’re anything like us you’re eagerly awaiting the day you can stretch your wings and head abroad once more and where better than beautiful Tasmania?
With the Tasmanian border now open to most states, we’re super excited to head down south for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Tasmania ticks a lot of boxes for us and it’s jam-packed with things to do. So without further ado here are some ‘Must Do’ highlights to add to your Tassie Itinerary.
MONA Museum & Morilla Winery
“Mona is one man’s ‘megaphone’ as he put it at the outset: and what he wants to say almost invariably revolves around the place of art and creativity within the definition of humanity. We know that sounds lofty, self-important. But we must be honest with you: our goal is no more, nor less, than to ask what art is, and what makes us look and look at it with ceaseless curiosity.” –More
Kids will love Mona’s quirkiness too. For Couples, take a leisurely day out and include lunch & wine tastings at Moorilla Vineyard (also on the Mona site). After all, no driving is required as you arrive to and from Hobart by ferry. See our Couples Escape Package for more details on this 2021 Getaway.
MONA will leave a lasting impression for all the right reasons.
“The famous Tahune AirWalk is an elevated walkway 30 metres above the forest floor, with the final cantilever section sitting at a height of 50 metres above the Huon River, with spectacular views to the confluence of the Huon and Picton and beyond to the peaks of the World Heritage Area.” – More
