Itinerary


Day 1 Welcome to Hobart, Tasmania

Upon arrival, meet your Journey Director and fellow travellers for a leisurely start to the day. Take time this morning to go in search of the best coffee, wander through shops in the nearby city centre, or explore historical Salamanca Place and its many fine art galleries.

Mid-morning you will head off to the picturesque Derwent Valley. The Agrarian Kitchen Eatery in New Norfolk is a unique restaurant housed within the town’s old asylum. Borne from a longing to grow and cook authentic local food where the ingredients speak for themselves, you’ll enjoy an indulgent three course lunch that will delight the senses.

This afternoon, explore at your own leisure, with either a visit to the iconic Museum of New and Old Art (MONA) followed by a ferry transfer back to Hobart, or sit back and relax with a two hour wine tasting at the rustic Derwent Estate Vineyard. Join your Journey Director and fellow travellers for a delicious three course dinner at one of Hobart’s renowned restaurants.
