A rockstar afternoon and evening of food, fun and filth.
Mona, the Museum of Old and New Art, 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, a chef’s hatted restaurant (The Source), a bunch of other bars and restaurants, luxury accommodation pavilions, and Tasmania’s biggest craft brewery (Moo Brew).
Best way to visit is to jump on a Mona Roma fast ferry from Hobart’s city centre – just look for a giant camouflaged catamaran with fibreglass animals for seats.
