After breakfast, board your vehicle and follow the coast to Coles Bay and Freycinet National Park. The natural beauty of this region, which comprises a peninsula defined by Schouten Island and a granite mountain range known as The Hazards, is quite simply breathtaking. Trails lead up to a lookout for panoramic views over Wineglass Bay, and you’ll also see the secluded coves of Coles, Honeymoon and Sleepy Bays.

After a leisurely start this morning, continue to Hobart to the renowned Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) for an all inclusive ‘Art Meets Wine’ experience. Perched on the banks of the River Derwent, MONA is Australia’s largest privately owned gallery and museum. Showcasing the diverse collection of its Tasmanian owner David Walsh, the museum exhibits everything from ancient Egyptian funerary objects and modernist masterpieces to a machine that mimics the human digestive system. Begin your MONA experience by exploring the maze of subterranean galleries, then make your way to the on-site Source restaurant for a lunch of seasonal local produce and wine from the adjacent Moorilla Estate winery. A behind-the-scenes tour of the vineyard, the second-oldest in Tasmania, follows. You’ll be treated to a tasting of ten different Moorilla wines before taking the MONA ROMA ferry to Hobart’s Constitution Dock, where the legendary Sydney to Hobart yacht race concludes each year. From there it’s just a short walk to your accommodation, the 5-star MACq 01 Hotel. The evening is free for you to explore the historic, yet trendy CBD.
