MONA, the Museum of Old and New Art, opened in January 2011. It is Australia’s largest private museum and houses a diverse private collection that ranges from ancient Egyptian mummies to some of the world’s most infamous and thought-provoking contemporary art. MONA is the only Australian experience that offers visitors a vineyard setting within a 15-minute drive of an Australian capital city, on-site accommodation, world-class fine dining, cellar door tastings, off-site micro-brewery tours, heated pool, sauna and gymnasium, an all-year events program and an internationally significant museum with a café and museum shop. The building’s subterranean design and the owner’s unconventional and challenging curatorial approach make it a must-see for any visitor to Australia.
MONA is located at 655 Main Road, Berriedale, Tasmania, Australia; a 15-minute drive from Hobart’s centre, or 30-minutes by our MR1 fast ferry from Hobart’s Brooke Street Pier (Posh Pit: $50 per person return/Cattle Class: $20 per person return). MONA ROMA coach hotel transfers and airport service also available. For more information, or to book transport, please visit the MONA website or Facebook page for random updates.
