What's new at the NGV International...

ngv international gold carousel carsten hollerGot to love the NGV International and the latest installments will suit the family down to the ground. Apart from the two exhibits we visited on the weekend the upcoming Express Yourself: Romance Was Born for Kids commences on the 17th October that sees art and fashion come together.

Step into the NGV International Forecourt and be mesmerized by the Carsten Höller Golden Mirror Carousel that will take you on a slow spin that patrons can hop on and off at their pace. This golden delight is a joy to cruise as it's the reflections from every angle that capture the beauty of the carousel plus it's free to ride. Read more...

Our Top Event of the Week

We love the Collingwood Children's Farm

It's a magical adventure for city kids to delight in farm life, hang out with the ducks, pat the goats, bottle feed the baby lambs and milk the cows.

It's our favourite place to hang out with our friends and little ones.



Our Top Activity of the Week

“The Island Bird” by Ernesto Neto at the NGV International

the Island Bird by Ernesto NetoA giant, interactive ‘nest’ has been unveiled at the NGV, and kids and adults alike are invited to climb through its labyrinthine, tunnel-like structures of crocheted rope. Created by renowned Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto, the sculpture is vibrantly coloured and almost 10m across, hovering several feet above the ground.
Looking out through a mesh of tropical colours — oranges and grays, greens and purples, blues and yellows—the works allows visitors to experience the gallery space from inside of the artwork itself and offers a place to slow down, relax, and rest. Read more...
