Where is it? Hobart
What is it? Professional gambler and art collector David Walsh’s Museum of Old and New Art is Australia’s largest museum. Described by its owner as a “subversive adult Disneyland”, the collection runs the full spectrum from ancient Egyptian mummies to contemporary conceptual installations.
Why go? From the moment you board the high-speed ferry that sails between Hobart’s waterfront and MONA’s 99 steps, you’ll realise this is a museum like no other. Get there early to see James Turrell’s Amarna: an outdoor light show that complements the natural conditions at sunrise and sunset.
