Kids Holiday Activities Summer

Due to COVID-19 impacts there have been changes to our school holiday programs. Songs & Stories, Baby Time and Story Time have been cancelled, except the sessions at the Julia Gillard Library Tarneit which will be held in the garden (weather permitting). Craft activities and outdoor programs will go ahead at this stage. Please refer to this page for future updates and a list of programs still running.

Summer is here!

Join us in Wyndham Park to be blown away by Brass Bedlam’s musical extravaganza or a Bollywood Zumba Dance Workout. Meet Felice Arena, author of Specky Magee and Sporty Kids. Get creative with crafts including NGV Kids on Tour art activities.

Our Children’s Librarians have created many fun activities to keep you busy over the holidays. Check them out below! Don’t forget to take photos of your crafts and upload them to the gallery.

NGV Kids on Tour is an initiative of the National Gallery of Victoria. NGV sincerely thanks the Packer Family and Crown Resorts Foundations for supporting NGV Kids and Learn programs as part of the Your NGV Arts Access Program for Students, Children and Families. NGV also acknowledges the generous support of The Neumann Auster Family & Friends.
