Looking at art used to be boring. It still is, maybe, but at least here at Mona, the Museum of Old and New Art, you can get drunk and/or rage against the machine. Located just up the river from Hobart (Tasmania’s southern capital), Mona’s subterranean architecture showcases the highlights (and lowlights) of David Walsh’s $110m private collection of art and antiquities, as well as hosting a busy exhibitions program. Mona is also home to the Moorilla winery, Source Restaurant, bars, cafe, accommodation pavilions and more (plus Moo Brew, an off site brewery).
We also host two festivals. Each January, our summer festival, Mofo, unleashes an eclectic mix of music and art. Come June, our Dark Mofo winter festival delves into centuries-old winter solstice rituals and celebrates the dark through art, music, food, film, light and noise.
Mona is located at 655 Main Road, Berriedale, Tasmania, Australia; a 15-minute drive from Hobart’s centre, or a 30-minute ride on our MR-1 fast ferry from Hobart’s Brooke Street Pier (Posh Pit: $55 per person return/Cattle Class: $22 per person return). For more information, or to book transport, please visit the Mona website.
