MONA and Wineglass Bay
Depart Hobart in a seaplane - taxiing across the Derwent River and ascending to take in the views of Hobart and Mt Wellington.
As the summit of Mt Wellington passes you by, learn about geological, geographical and historical points of interest from the pilot. Then, after 20 minutes, cross the east coast of Tasmania to enjoy the Maria Island National Park panorama. Soon after, you will fly past the rugged cliffs of Schouten Island, which lies just off the southern tip of the Freycinet Peninsula. Flying further up the Peninsula, you will pass over some of the world's most pristine coastline with jagged dolerite columns, aqua blue water, sea eagles, and white sandy beaches; including Wineglass Bay.
The plane will descend past Mt Amos to land in a beautiful bay on the Freycinet Peninsula, where your pilot will take you onto one of the National Park's beaches (weather dependent).
40 minutes later, after another exhilarating water take-off, land back on the Derwent River and taxi to MONA.
You will be greeted by MONA staff and taken by buggy to The Source Restaurant to enjoy a three-course lunch. Executive chef, Philippe Leban, will tailor lunch to your taste and dietary needs. A sommelier is also on hand to match each course with fine wine from Moorilla and around the world. (Optional: matching wines can be purchased $50 p/p).
After lunch you are free to explore the museum.
Return to Hobart onboard the MONA ferry or MONA ROMA coach.
Note: As the Freycinet Peninsula is a designated remote area, passengers should bring a hat, sunscreen and water bottle, which are all available at passenger check-in. The aircraft will be beaching, please consider your clothing, footwear and bring a small towel.
