Want to stay longer?
We can organise accommodation in Hobart at the Henry Jones Art Hotel – www.thehenryjones.com for those who wish to spend more time for $350.00 per room rate in a Deluxe Spa Harbour View Room, plus breakfast for two.
I would suggest visiting MONA www.mona.net.au – a short walk from the hotel to catch the ferry; dinner at Garagistes – www.garagistes.com.au; a day trip on the Peppermint Bay Ferry to Peppermint Bay and Bruny Island. There is a fantastic boat trip from Adventure Bay on Bruny Island down to view the seal colony at the Friars.
Recently I spent a day at the Agrarian Kitchen – www.theagrariankitchen.com with Rodney Dunn – another wonderful Tasmanian experience which I highly recommend. This is 20 minutes out of Hobart.
