4.3. If you attempt to duplicate or re-use your ticket (or ticket equivalents including pass out stamps and wristbands) for the purpose of enabling another person to enter the venue or transport vehicle to which your ticket relates, we will cancel your ticket and you will not be admitted nor entitled to any refund or reimbursement. For the avoidance of doubt, any ticket that has been duplicated without our written consent is invalid.

4.7. Unless we permit you to do so, you must not:

  1. offer your ticket for resale (whether for a premium or otherwise) to any person by any means (excluding any resale of your ticket authorised by us); or

  2. deny you entry into the venue or transport vehicle as may be applicable from time to time.

4.9. Instances of suspected fraud or scalping will be reported to the police.

5. Safety

5.1. To protect your safety and the safety of others, we may need to take certain action from time to time, including those actions set out in this clause 5. Where practical we will provide you with our reasons for taking such actions.

6. Refunds, exchanges, cancellations and transfers

6.1. We adhere to the Live Performance Australia (LPA) Code of Practice for the Ticketing of Live Entertainment in Australia.

6.2. Subject to these Terms and Conditions and any statutory right of refund under the Australian Consumer Law, we will provide you with a full refund or exchange your ticket in the following circumstances:

  1. The event, tour or transport to which your ticket relates is cancelled, relocated to a significantly different venue, or significantly rescheduled; or
  2. we have provided you with materially incorrect information regarding the promotion of the event, tour or transfer to which to ticket relates. 

6.3. If only part of a ticketed event is cancelled, significantly relocated, significantly re-scheduled or otherwise significantly varied we may offer you a pro-rata refund if it is reasonable to do so in the circumstances.

6.4. Refunds should be applied for within five (5) working days from the announcement of cancellation, relocation or reschedule where eligible conditions for a refund described in 6.2 exist.

6.5. Where specified, event end times are indicative and approximate only. They are not grounds for a refund (full or pro-rata) if the event runs shorter or longer than specified. 

6.6. In the case of sold-out events, Mona may, at its discretion, offer refunds and if you no longer can or wish to attend the event. This is subject to us having a confirmed waiting list of prospective ticket purchasers in relation to that event to whom we may resell your ticket. The waitlist will only occur on sold-out events and at the discretion of Mona.

6.7. To request a refund or make a complaint, please contact Ticket Support via email (tickets@mona.net.au) or phone (+61 (3) 6277 9978), five (5) days before an event's scheduled commencement, where your submission will be reviewed in accordance with Live Performance Australia's (LPA) Ticketing Code of Practice Consumer Code.

6.8. Unless required by the Australian Consumer Law, we are not responsible for any travel, accommodation, food, or other expense or costs that you may incur as a result of any cancellation, relocation or rescheduling of any event, tour or transport. You should carefully consider the refund and cancellation policies of travel, accommodation and other goods or service providers when making arrangements for attendance at an event or tour. You may also wish to consider taking out a relevant insurance policy to cover for any losses in the event of cancellation, rescheduling or relocation.

6.9. We may replace lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed tickets if the authenticity of the ticket can be verified, including proof of purchase, and if you give reasonable notice before the event. We reserve the right to charge a reasonable fee for the replacement of tickets. We may not replace if we suspect fraud, scalping or other improper use has taken place.

6.10. Subject to this clause 6, you may  transfer or obtain a refund or exchange for museum entry and ferry or bus tickets if such transfer, refund or exchange occurs no later than 48 hours prior to:

  1. the ticketed admission date and time for entry into the Mona museum; and
  2. the ticketed departure date and time of the ferry or bus transport.

You may change the return time of your transport ticket up to 15 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time, subject to transport availability.

6.11. If you wish to transfer or obtain a refund or exchange of your:

  1. transport ticket, please email us at tickets@mona.net.au or phone (03) 6277 9900 and quote your order number; or
  2. your event, festival or tour ticket, please email us at tickets@mona.net.au to enquire whether you are eligible for a transfer, refund or exchange.

6.12. If we offer you a refund of your transport, event or tour ticket pursuant to clauses 6.5 and 6.8, we will only refund the amount originally paid for that ticket. We do not offer refunds for booking and handling fees that you might have incurred as part of the original ticket purchase.

6.13. If we offer you a transfer for your transport, event or tour ticket, you are responsible for the associated rebooking fee and administration fee.

6.14. If you decide to cancel a booking to which an event, tour or transfer ticket relates, and we have already incurred costs as a direct result of your booking, you must:

  1. pay any cancellation fees that are imposed on us by third parties as a result of your cancellation; and
  2. any other costs that are directly incurred by us as a result of your cancellation, including but not limited to events, tours or transport tickets that included a food and beverage or catering component. 

6.15. Except as described in clauses 6.5 and 6.6, we will not provide a refund or exchange if you change your mind or if there is a change to your personal circumstances.

6.16  All ticketing terms, including refunds, transfers and exchanges, are subject and subordinate to any conditions imposed by a promoter or touring artist. You will be notified of any conditions at the point of purchase or when tickets are issued.

6.17 Mona is the only authorised ticket seller unless we specify on our website that there are other authorised ticket sellers. We strongly recommend you only purchase tickets from authorised ticket sellers. If you purchase tickets from another source, individual or any other unauthorised reseller, you risk that these tickets are fake, void or have previously been cancelled. Purchasing tickets from an unauthorised ticket seller means that we cannot refund you if an event is cancelled, and we cannot inform you of important changes to event times and production details.

8.2. For example, there are Consumer Guarantees that any services we provide to you will be provided with due care and skill, will be fit for any specified purpose, and will be provided within a reasonable time (if no time is specified).
