The bushfires continuing to ravage parts of Australia …
Australia’s wine regions each possess a unique personality and we are excited to offer an array of experiences allowing you to immerse in the sights, sounds and flavours that set each region apart.
From the isolated coastal splendour of Margaret River, to Seppeltsfield's awe-inspiring Centennial Cellar to Hobart's extraordinary Museum of Old and New Art, we've curated a selection of experiences that celebrate both their unique locations and the wine regions they call home.
Where: Hobart, Tasmania
The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), is Australia’s largest privately-owned gallery and museum. Showcasing the diverse collection of its owner, Tasmanian gambler and maths nerd David Walsh, Mona exhibits everything from ancient Egyptian funerary objects and modernist masterpieces to a word waterfall and a machine that mimics the human digestive system. The Mona site—perched on the banks of the River Derwent, not far from Hobart—is also home to the Moorilla winery and vineyard, as well as luxury accommodation, bars, a restaurant and more.
The experiences commences at Hobart to Mona to board the high-speed ferry to Mona where the morning is yours to explore the subterranean depths of Mona's vast space.
After an art binge, it's lunchtime, head to Mona's multi award-winning restaurant for a lunch of seasonal local produce, matched with a glass of wine from Moorilla’s Muse or Praxis Series.
Fed and watered, you’ll then begin your behind-the-scenes tour of the winery and Moorilla’s vineyard (the second oldest in Tasmania). Delve into Moorilla’s backstory with your expert host and get acquainted with the finer points of old and new artisanal winemaking techniques. You’ll be treated to a tasting of ten different Moorilla wines—elegant, fragrant and often experimental—including a selection from their prestigious Cloth Label Series.
The experience concludes with the return ferry to Hobart.
Where: Margaret River, Western Australia

Inside you’ll find a cellar door, a fine dining restaurant, and numerous artworks and features throughout curated by Chief Winemaker and fourth generation family member, Chester Osborn.
The experience begins in the Alternate Realties Museum on the ground floor, where a private hosted exploration will take you through a space filled with wall to wall art installations designed to excite and awaken your senses.
Next, a single vineyard flight will showcase a selection of 6 wines that capture the essence of a unique patch of dirt and speak volumes of the site and vintage, celebrating the importance of place and the art of winemaking. A selection of locally sourced cheeses will be served with your wine flight.
