A guided tour of MONA is included as part of the conference package. MONA is an art museum located within the Moorilla winery on the Berriedale peninsula in Hobart. Described as a “subversive adult Disneyland”, MONA presents antiquities, modern and contemporary art from David Walsh’s collection.

Lonely Planet recently ranked Hobart as number 7 of the top 10 cities to visit in 2013, citing MONA as a major tourist attraction in a small city. Other attractions in Hobart include the Salamanca Markets and Port Arthur.
