Located in the beautiful Yarra Valley (a one hour drive from Melbourne), TarraWarra Museum of Art is home to a diverse range of Australian art from the second half of the twentieth century to the present day.

Over two jam-packed days, all are invited to explore the Museum and its stunning surrounds in a fun-filled atmosphere. There will be Pop-up Museum tours every hour all weekend and a participatory soft sculpture activity – come and add a colourful pipe cleaner! Check out the other highlights below:
