Hobart Half Day Mt Wellington, Wildlife & Wine Experience

Mount Wellington Mt Wellington Wildlife and Wine Half Day Tour

Tour description

This experience provides a sample of everything Tasmania has to offer – exceptional scenery, award winning wine and precious wildlife. The experience commences by travelling to the summit of Mt Wellington 1271 metres (just over 4000 feet) above the city of Hobart. Mt Wellington is officially known as Kunanyi. On arrival at the summit you will have the opportunity to capture some spectacular panoramic views over southern Tasmania. Next stop is Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary a sanctuary for Tasmanian wildlife.  Your chance to come closer than ever to something wild and fragile.  As soon as you walk through the old wooden gate you’ll realise you’ve come to a place where animals are deeply cared for and you become part of an inspiring conservation story. At Bonorong you’ll have the opportunity to meet the Tasmanian Devil, and stroll the sanctuary feeding Kangaroos.

Final stop is Domaine Simha for a wine & cheese tasting. Domaine Simha’s cellar door is situated within the Brooke Street Pier ferry terminal overlooking the beautiful harbour of Hobart. Domaine Simha was founded at the edge of the world by Nav Singh and Louise Radman. An avant-garde approach shapes living wine relying on ancient knowledge and intuition.

Crafted by hand in very small batches, just 2-3 barrels of each Domaine Simha wine are made. At heart lies Tasmania’s pristine natural environment, sparkling air and ancient soil. Hunting out magical vineyards in the upper Derwent, Coal River and Huon Valleys, Domaine Simha partners with expert growers. The dream is to plant our own patch of earth some day Nav Singh mastered the craft of wine in Australia and honed his skills in the prestigious chateaux of Burgundy and Bordeaux.

His Single vineyard wines are shaped au naturel to harness the provenance of epic Tasmanian terroir and season. Methods embrace harvesting by lunar cycle on fruit and flower days, whole bunch wild fermentation with traditional pigeage, maturation in custom demi-muid oak and clay amphorae, basket pressing, bottling unfined and unfiltered with perfect natural balance. The house of Simha originates from sanskrit for lion. To honour a heroic heritage, Domaine Simha wines take their titles from royalty and legends of the East.

After the completion of the experience you are centrally located to visit the Salamanca Market (Saturday’s), or stroll around the waterfront before enjoying an evening meal at one of the many beautiful restaurants. The Hobart Twilight Market is a great way to spend a Friday night in Hobart, located at Long Beach Lower Sandy Bay and Macquarie Point, Hobart. You can enjoy gourmet food, artisan wine, along with browsing the art, craft and design. Live music from local talent adds to the atmosphere.
