Mona presents The Golden Hour: soak up sunset courtesy of James Turrell – kind of what God would do if he decided to build a gazebo. Whet your appetite with a tasty tidbit and a glass of sparkling, while Turrell’s 45-minute sunset sequence, Amarna (2015), turns the sky supernatural colours. Then retire to the Wine Bar for a communal dining experience.

The tucker: Vince Trim fires up his Heavy Metal Kitchen to deliver a rotating menu of roasted whole meats, wood-fired vegetables, smoked seafood and char-grilled goodness. Made with high-quality Tasmanian and Australian fresh ingredients, the delectable offering includes a taster, entree, main, sides and dessert. Vegetarians and those with dietary requirements are catered for too; please notify on booking.

With an emphasis on intimate dining, it’s a curated dinner party that will have you sharing top-notch tucker and flirty banter with the stranger on your left.  Bookings essential. Groups or singles welcome. Blankets provided for cooler evenings.

MONA: Tasmania’s Museum of Old and New Art is situated on the Berriedale Peninsula in Hobart, Tasmania. The art museum sits within the Moorilla Winery and is the largest privately funded museum in Australia, featuring Ancient, Modern and Contemporary Art. There are also Bars, a cafe, restaurant and cinema. The museum is owned by David Walsh and was opened in January 2011. MONA also plays host to the MOFO and Dark Mofo festivals held each year.
