Constitution Dock and MONA

May I suggest that anyone who goes to Hobart must go and see the new Museum of Old and New Art – if only for the fantastic building in which it is housed.  It is mostly underground, built by tunneling into the hillside above the Derwent River by David Walsh, a wealthy businessman and art connoisseur, it is purported to have cost over one hundred million dollars and houses a most eclectic collection of art and antiquities.  One could spend a week there, and still not see everything.  The owner has described as a subversive adult Disneyland.

These were taken around Constitution Dock, famous for being the mooring place for boats that have completed the annual Sydney-Hobart Yacht Race, and at MONA.
