There was a time, not all that long ago, when the remote island of Tasmania off Australia's southern coast was the most feared destination in the British Empire.The capital, Hobart, has a small-town feel light years away from the beachside glamour of Sydney, 1,000 km to the north, its sandstone cottages huddling beneath the imposing figure of Mt. Wellington.Tourists are led by a guide as they walk around the historical town of Port Arthur, located southeast of the capital city of Hobart December 26, 2014 . Located on the edge of Hobart, MONA has earned Tasmania a star in the art world's firmament through its confronting and vital exhibitions, and stunning architecture.The gallery, 17 meters below the surface and reachable via a spiral staircase bored into sandstone, houses more than 2,000 pieces from Walsh's collection, including works by renowned artists such as Damien Hirst and Jean-Michel Basquiat.A tourist takes a photograph of the inside of an old church at the historical town of Port Arthur, located southeast of the capital city of Hobart December 26, 2014 .
