Our main objective in visiting Hobart was to visit the Museum of Old and New Art (MoNA).

This involves a ride up the Derwent River from Hobart in a Catamaran.

There are many wonderful, bizarre and unique exhibits inside the museum but I didn’t take any photographs inside (though I could have done).  I felt it would have been too much just photographing art works without interpretation and that didn’t appeal to me at the time.

So here are some of the wonderful outside sculptures (in this case also a building).

We could see this from inside the bulding but it took some exploring to find it.

The weather held off for us but intermittently there was some very heavy rain.

This is back to the sculpture of the truck.

Back on the Hobart waterfront.  I paced it out and this is a 70 foot ketch, of similar size to the one we were soon to sail on.  This is very different though.  Although modern, it is a hybrid replica of ships from say the eighteenth century.  The purpose is for commercial day trips from Hobart.

Lastly we walked around Battery Point and I photographed some of the charming old cottages.  This is at Arthur’s Circus.

A bit further on, round the corner on Hampden Road.
