I went to Hobart last week for a week off and some mental health. I have never been to Tasmania, our little island the bottom of the world. I loved it. The history, the architecture, MONA, the passion of local food producers and chefs.
MONA – The Museum of Old and New Art, pictured above – opened this year in Hobart. It is the most impressive art gallery/experience I have been to in Australia. A lot has been written already about its owner/creator David Walsh, an eccentric multi-millionaire and was well summarised on Crikey back in January.
I would recommend getting down to Hobart soon to see this. Superlatives do no justice.
Here are some snaps from my time at MONA, and in Hobart:
