HOBART'S Northern Suburbs

HOBART is the lovely, historic, capital of Tasmania. This NORTH of HOBART page in my website covers the suburbs of GLENORCHY, BERRIEDALE and CLAREMONT. These are north of Hobart City. There are a number of interesting easy to access attractions in this area, including the famous MONA museum. The attractions in the other parts of Hobart are shown in the other 7 Hobart pages, which are listed below.

From the GLENORCHY you are 20 minutes from PONTVILLE and 40 minutes from HUONVILLE, BRUNY ISLAND and RICHMOND.

You are 70 minutes from GEEVESTON, NEW NORFOLK and KEMPTON. You are 100 minutes from SOUTHPORT, PORT ARTHUR, OATLANDS and MARIA ISLAND.

You are 2 hours from the SOUTH WEST National Park, CAMPBELL TOWN, SWANSEA and FREYCINET. You are 150 minutes from LAUNCESTON in the north, DERWENT BRIDGE in the centre, STRATHGORDON in the south west and BICHENO in the east and you a very long 4 hours from DEVONPORT.

Nearby places are described in the REGION HOBART, REGION HUON, PONTVILLE, RICHMOND, Mt WELLINGTON, HOBART BELLERIVE, HOBART City, SOUTH of HOBART, HOBART BOTANICAL GARDENS, BRUNY ISLAND, HUONVILLE, NEW NORFOLK and KEMPTON information pages.

FACILITIES: There is a very large shopping precinct in Glenorchy. Hobart is the largest city in Tasmania. If you can't buy it in Hobart, then you are unlikely to buy it in Tasmania. There is much accommodation in the northern suburbs of HOBART as well as in GREATER HOBART.

TOURIST information is located at 20 Davey Street, Hobart. The telephone contact number is (03) 6230 8233 or 1800 990 440 or the contact is www.hobarttravelcentre.com.au

For PRIVATE GUIDES telephone (03) 6238 4222

SIGHTS & ROUTES: There are a number of photographic attractions north of the HOBART CBD, which are quite easy to access by car. They are all just off the main north to south Brooker Highway. They are quite easy to reach, if you consult my Google map shown on the HOBART REGION page. All of these are indoors, so they make good options for rainy days. These include the:

  • MONA
  • MONA 2
  • NORTH

 

MONA, Hobart

1/ MONA is located in the northern suburbs of Hobart. The first thing that surprises you about Mona is that it is practically invisible, as it is mostly underground. You can see in this photo, taken from only one kilometre away, that nothing significant seems to be in sight.

MONA, Hobart

2/ Only when you get close, do you realize that a major structure is present, but even then MONA has surprises.

MONA, Hobar

3/ MONA then greets you with an integrated variety of geometric lines and colors that really stand out.

MONA, Hobar

4/ The first exhibit I saw at MONA was a truck sculpture made out of rusting wire. This was my first hint that MONA has new ideas about Art.

MONA, Hobar

5/ MONA also has a tennis court to suggest that Sport and Art may be the same thing. You notice as well that every surface building is using different materials to show that Art comes in many forms.

MONA, Hobart

6/ The steps to the boat landing at MONA show that Architecture and Art can be viewed as the same thing. It is only when you walk down the stairs that you realize that most of MONA is underground.

MONA, Hobar

7/ Even the boat landing of MONA is a piece of sculpture. There is a boat ferry service from the Hobart CBD.

MONA, Hobar

8/ The upward view from the boat landing shows you the true size of MONA and how it is integrated into the bedrock of the Derwent River.

MONA, Hobar

9/ From the top of the stairs of MONA you see beautiful vistas of the Derwent River, showing you the subtle connection between Nature and Art.

MONA, Hobart

10/ The view to the south of MONA shows both Hobart and Mt Wellington. This emphasizes how MONA is part of this landscape.

MONA, Hobart

11/ The western view shows the mountains and northern suburbs of Hobart that surrounding you at MONA.

MONA, Hobart

12/ Finally you enter MONA thr0ugh this multi faceted, ultra modern building, where you are advised to conduct your journey from the bottom to the top.

 

MONA, Hobart

1/ MONA consists of a series of corridors leading off to other specialized display rooms. This one shows art work made from the ruins of Hiroshima.

MONA, Hobart

2/ There was a large cinemedia display at MONA with a number of moving triptychs with strange surreal themes. This one showed a strange link between beauty and violence.

MONA, Hobart

3/ This section of MONA showed a display of crystals, which emphasized their strange artistic dimensions.

MONA, Hobart

4/ The 2D and 3D art pieces at MONA showed a wide range of interpretations and presentation styles.

MONA, Hobart

5/ This seven section picture showed a creative moving image. It was like looking out of a train. It is likely that future Art will demand moving images like these.

MONA, Hobart

6/ I have seen fat people in slim cars, but never a fat car. This car reversed this idea, which I found very creative. It was a major attraction at MONA.

MONA, Hobart

7/ The Mummy was kept in a dark room like a tomb, which you entered reverently. You then approached the Mummy across a pool on these stone steps. The display showed the new attitude to presentation at MONA.

MONA, Hobart

8/ The Mummy changed from an outside to an Xray view, showing the link between old and new at MONA.

MONA, Hobart

9/ This ancient Egyptian chest was presented with a modern art piece showing the link between the old and the new at MONA.

MONA, Hobart

10/ The dress was presented with electronic sets, showing the link between Science and Art at MONA.

MONA, Hobart

11/ You have to be very creative to turn a messy, filing cabinet into an interesting sculpture.

MONA, Hobart

12/ This was an abstract sculpture with many possible interpretations. The multiple interpretation of art works was a key theme of MONA.

MONA, Hobart

13/ This was one of the most unusual exhibits at MONA. It takes people a while to realize that this is not a library, but a very creative new sculpture.

MONA, Hobart

14/ This water word sculpture was one of the most famous exhibits at MONA. You see water forming words before dumping the word.

MONA, Hobart

15/ This huge spherical sculpture was capable of many possible interpretations. It was one of the largest exhibits at MONA.

MONA, Hobart

16/ There was even a place for cartoon like colors and simple themes at MONA.

MONA, Hobart

17/ A show piece of MONA is this monster collage painted by Sidney Nolan. The hundreds of individual panels make up an image of a dream time snake.

18/ This realistic boy sculpture was one of the most subtle works of art at MONA. Many visitors walk past it or even try to talk to the sculpture before they realize the joke.

 

Berriedale, Bay, Hobart, Tasmania

1/ The Derwent River near Hobart has many moods and at sunset it can be really enchanting. This image shows the river near Berriedale looking across to the eastern shore.

Berriedale, Bay, Hobart, Tasmania

2/ This is another view of the Derwent River at Sunset from the Berriedale Caravan Park.

Berriedale, Bay, Hobart, Tasmania

3/ This is looking down the Derwent River near Berriedale at a flock of ducks at sunset.

North Hobart

4/ The Calvary Hospital in New Town shows how even the cluttered areas of Hobart have an interesting character.

North Hobart

5/ New Town is a hilly suburb like most of Hobart. It shows lots of variety in its architecture.

North Hobart

6/ Many Hobart suburbs, like New Town, have the charm of being surrounded by mountains.
