Win two sybaritic nights at MONA in Hobart

| |

David Walsh’s Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) is generously supporting Daily Review by providing two nights accommodation for two people at its luxurious MONA Pavilions on the River Derwent including breakfast at the Source Restaurant with multiple free entry for two to MONA – Australia’s most exciting museum only a short stagger from your king size, 400 thread count cotton-sheeted bed.

For a chance to win this decadent experience, normally valued at $1400.00, all you need do is support our ongoing quest to fund independent arts journalism by buying a copy of Daily Review‘s new print publication, brilliantly titled Daily Review. One winner will be randomly selected from the orders we receive ($14.50 per magazine including postage within Australia or buy more to multiply your chances) by November 30. (See details below).


Erwin Wurm’s Fat Car at MONA

The 68 page colour magazine is a collection of essays and articles by the artist and writer John Kelly who was nominated for a Walkley Award for Excellence in Journalism this year for his Daily Review article which examined how Australia’s choice of artist for representation at the Venice Biennale is controlled by a small group of interconnected cultural gatekeepers.

This article and others Kelly has written for Daily Review are included in the magazine along with essays about his bizarre dealings with the bureaucracy at the Australia Council. These dealings inadvertently saw Kelly given the rights to reproduce the famous Australia Council kangaroo logo. Kelly’s version of the logo now sports the label of the Moo Brew beer brand owned by David Walsh, the founder and owner of MONA. Some argue that the use of the Australia Council logo on David Walsh’s beer is the best thing to have ever happened to the Australia Council.

Moo Brew and Australian Galleries are supporters of the Daily Review magazine and all proceeds from its sales will go towards our ongoing efforts to produce engaging and independent arts journalism and commentary at a time when it is is declining in mainstream media.

So buy a magazine, help arts journalism and win the chance of spending two nights at the MONA Pavilions for two (with one of the world’s best hotel breakfasts at The Source included). To buy a magazine, go to our SUPPORT PAGE and simply type $14.50 into the specified amount field.

If you are paying by credit card and your mailing address is not recorded, please email your address to after payment. We apologise for this inconvenience, but as we rely on reader support to fund Daily Review, we’d rather spend money on articles and reviews than buttons.

Also note that the two nights accomodation is available for one year from December 1, 2017 but is subject to availability. MONA Pavilions have four luxury one-bedroom suites named after Australian artists and architects and each is decorated with artworks from MONA.

  1. The Derwent, from the Sidney perspective with a glass of Pinot in hand and the anticipation of MONA. Could life be better?
