Pavilions

The eight contemporary pavilions on Hobart's private peninsula complete Australia's coolest art experience.

Hobart, the state capital of Tasmania, is home to a mind-blowing subterranean art gallery.

The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) is integrated into the Moorilla winery estate and showcases ancient, modern, and contemporary art.
