Average Reviews


Eat + Drink Mona

Ancient, modern and contemporary art. Bar, café and cemetery on site.

There’s so much good stuff to put in your mouth at Mona. Here’s a taste:

The Source Restaurant

Perched atop the Mona site, the Source is a temple to seasonal Tasmanian dining.

Settle in for sweeping views, lush and living moss-and-herb tables, an award-winning wine list, and (needless to say, but here we go) impeccable service.

Feast on seasonally sourced dishes as you settle in at a living table on the restaurant balcony. Or at a non-living table inside, filled with bespoke artefacts and fertility objects. While you’re at it, drink deep from our award-winning wine list, with bottles ferried up to you from the star-studded wine bunker. The primo views are on the house.

Your booking includes entry to Mona’s grounds. Bookings essential.

Please email to arrange a group booking of more than 8 people.

Bookings available 28 days in advance from 26 December 2020.

Ether Building, Mona



Faro Bar + Restaurant

A light-drenched bar and restaurant suspended over the river. Share plates galore and art to order off the menu. Totally luxe dinners available, too.

Bookings essential. Lunch includes entry to the museum and Mona grounds. Dinner includes entry to the grounds.

Go the whole hog with a Luxe Dinner: a seven-course mystery feast; a sommelier to guide you through rare bottles and back vintages from the Moorilla and Domaine A cellars; and exclusive entry to artworks by James Turrell.

Lunch bookings include entry to the museum and Mona grounds. Dinner bookings include entry to the grounds.

Moorilla Website

Moo Brew Website

Mona Lawns, Mona


No bookings required, but you will need a grounds pass or museum entry to visit.

Moorilla Wine Bar

Relax and fill up on seasonal treats, share plates, and house-made breads and pastries before or after delving down into the museum’s underworld.  

Sit inside or out, on the patio, or catch the sun on the grass—Moorilla or Moo Brew in-hand. You can also peer into the inner workings of the winery, just behind the glass. 


No bookings required, but you will need a grounds pass or museum entry to visit

Void Bar

Everything you’d expect from a cocktail bar buried seventeen metres underground.

It serves some of the best cocktails in Hobart—nay, Tasmania! Nay, the southern hemisphere!—and, of a weekend in the cooler months, has free live music.

Level 3, Mona


Located in the museum, so you’ll need to book museum entry to visit

Book Mona Entry

Your museum entry ticket gets you in the door and lets you explore our general collection and the farthest reaches of David’s lounge room (some artworks require a separate ticket). You can book timed entry or wildcard; more info below.

Or if you hate museums and would rather perambulate around the grounds—outdoor art, music, things to put in your mouth—book a grounds pass instead.


Pre-bookings are a must, even if you’re Tasmanian. More info below.


Mona reopens from 26 December. Fridays to Mondays, 10am–6pm.

Getting To Mona

Mona is located on the banks of the River Derwent in Berriedale, eleven kilometres north of Hobart—approximately twenty-five minutes by water, or twenty minutes by road.

Sail here by high-speed, camouflaged ferry or catch our bus. Both travel regularly between Hobart and Mona, departing Hobart from Brooke Street Pier on the waterfront.

There are 99 steps upon arrival at Mona. The jetty isn’t wheelchair or pram accessible at the moment—we apologise for this and assure you we’re working on it. If this affects you, please call Ticket Support to discuss your options.
