There's time for lunch around Hobart's waterfront before heading to the unique Mona museum, now Tasmania's most visited attraction.
Located at the mouth of the Derwent River, Bruny Island is the home to unique wildlife (including the white Bennett's wallabies), dramatic scenery and delicious local produce. After a short ferry ride across the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, we head to the spectacular seascape of Cape Bruny and the Bruny Island Lighthouse.
