Valid for 01APR17-31MAR18:
Wine and art. A match made in the proverbial.
Mona, the Museum of Old and New Art, is Australia's largest privately owned gallery and museum. Showcasing the diverse collection of its owner, Tasmanian gambler David Walsh, the collection ranges from ancient Egyptian funerary objects to modernist masterpieces and international contemporary art. Since opening in 2011, visitors have been drawn to Mona's picturesque site on the banks of the River Derwent, which also features luxury accommodation, a restaurant, vineyard and winery amongst other things.
Begin your self-guided day by taking Mona's MR-1 Fast Ferry from Hobart's Brooke Street Pier to Mona at 9:30am* to ensure maximum time to explore the museum and grounds. Late rises or art novices may choose to spend less time on their visit and depart instead at 11am*. Entry to the museum is included in your tour, giving you free reign to explore its permanent collection and an array of blockbuster exhibitions. Check the website to see what's on: mona.net.au
After your art fix, wander up to the Source Restaurant for lunch, named after the artwork by John Olsen, that's exhibited in the ceiling of the staircase. Enjoy any main meal, paired with a glass of wine from Moorilla's Muse or Praxis Series and sweeping views to the vineyard, Derwent river and Mount Wellington.
The behind-the-scenes winery tour and wine tasting starts in the vineyard (the second oldest in Tasmania, mind you). Follow the trail of grapes as they are handpicked, crushed, pressed, fermented and matured. Witness how new and old artisan winemaking techniques are used to craft fragrant, elegant and classical wines. Your expert host will provide an overview of the history of the region and winery, as well as information on the winemaking process and the ten different grape varieties grown on site. The tasting features ten different wines including a selection from Moorilla's prestigious Cloth Label Series.
End your day by taking Mona's MR-1 Fast Ferry from Mona to Hobart's Brooke Street Pier at 5.

The Mona site, perched on the banks of the River Derwent is also home to the Moorilla winery and vineyard. Arriving at Mona, begin your exploration of the underground galleries at your leisure. After your art binge, head to Mona's top notch restaurant at 1.30pm for a once course lunch of seasonal local produce, matched with a glass of Moorilla wine. After lunch take a behind the scenes tour of the winery and vineyard. Delve into Moorilla's back story with your expert host and learn the finer points of old and new artisanal winemaking techniques. You will be treated to a tasting of a selection of Moorilla wines, including a selection from their prestigious Cloth Label series. Board the 5.00pm ferry for the transfer back to Hobart.
