Getting around

Familiarise yourself with Brooke Street Pier (Franklin Wharf). This is where you can catch a ride to Mona, and it’s within walking distance of all our city venues:

Odeon Theatre: 750m
Peacock Theatre: 500m
Federation Concert Hall: 500m
Faux Mo: hop, skip, jump
Theatre Royal: 750m
Salamanca Arts Centre: 500m
Contemporary Art Tasmania: 1.7km

Outside of the city
The Barn at Rosny Farm is on the Eastern Shore. It’s just over the bridge. You can drive, bus or cab here.

Alonnah Hall, Bruny Island is, you guessed it, on Bruny Island. You’ll need a car or at least a ride. It’s down ‘the channel’ as the locals call it. The Bruny Island Ferry sails daily and often.

Ferries and buses will be running between Brooke Street Pier and Mona often. A return ticket will cost you $20, or you can buy a three-day return pass for $45.

Once the ferries sell out, tickets will automatically switch to buses. We’ll let you know if this is the case before you click confirm.

Travel times can be changed up to half an hour before departure, subject to availability. See Museum Reception or Box Office (Mona) or Mona Ferry Terminal (Brooke Street Pier) staff to do so.

Please arrive at Brooke Street Pier 45 minutes prior to your departure, rather than the usual 15 minutes. To keep you busy, we've programmed a heap of free live music there from noon till 5.30pm daily (check Brooke Street Pier's Facebook page daily for the lineup).

Upon arrival at Brooke Street Pier, you'll need to head downstairs and flash your Three-Day Mona Pass or Day Pass for a wristband. Once that's sorted, you'll be able to queue for the ferry. Make sure you have your transport ticket at the ready.
