Mount Wellington + MONA in one day?

On a Thursday in October we want to do the Wellington Mt Descent tour (10AM - 12:30PM), grab lunch and ferry up to MONA by 3PM. Explore MONA for a couple hours and then do their Golden Hour dinner at 7PM.

Questions:

1) is two hours at MONA too short?

2) If MONA closes at 5pm and dinner is a 7, what to do up there for 2 hours? I know there is a wine bar/cellar door but we also want to be fresh for dinner ;)

3) Is there taxi or Uber service from MONA to get back post dinner?

Any input is greatly appreciated!!

1. 2 hours for me is minimum time there

2. Maybe ask MONA what you do do in the 2 hours waiting time (there doesn't seem to be much around and it could be dark by 6pm

Golden Hour is a sunset dinner so it wont be dark until after you've eaten (actually while)

Tire's not much to do around at all.....

maybe pack good book and sit and enjoy the view from the outdoor area

HI,

For your sake I hope you love MONA, if you don't it's going to be a long 2 hours waiting for dinner.

If it's a fine day/night sit on the grass or seating and watch the world go by, or go and have a few drinks (alcohol or non-alcohol) before dinner at one of the bars, and take them out on to the grass.

I always park my own car, and you may have to order a taxi or Uber service.

Safe travels - Robert
