Ferry ride to Mona was fantastic! The Posh Pit was certainly value for money, with great food, champers and beer, served by very attentive staff! A great way to start and end the day spent at MONA!!

Well worth the visit. Some exhibits are a little weird and some are fabulous. Ferry trip over is nice as well.
