We Make Carpets NGV Kids Exhibition

The exhibition is so immense that it stretches across all four levels of NGV International, the gardens and cafe included. Take your time and cover the exhibition over multiple visits, particularly if you're visiting with children.

You must not miss the NGV Kids Gallery, which has been transformed into a wonderful, colourful tactile exhibit, designed by Dutch art collective 'We Make Carpets'. Children are encouraged to craft their 'tapestries' on the walls and the floor using pool noodles, ropes, felt & wooden shapes.

Fun in the Sun at the Beach

The summer holidays gives Melburnians the best weather so why not hit the beach with the kids. Anyone who says Melbourne doesn't have great beaches, obviously needs to head south.

Brighton Beach


Beaches local to the city include Williamstown, Altona & St Kilda, but if you head south you'll hit: Brighton Beach with a backdrop of glorious beach boxes, Half Moon Bay; a shallow and sheltered beach near Black Rock, or further down the coast you'll hit a wide open stretch of beach between Edithvale and Seaford.
