Come and try your ice-skating skills on real ice, the perfect venue for a full day out, for all ages.
The first of it’s kind in Australia, ArtVo is an immersive art gallery or ‘trick art’ gallery. Unlike normal art museums, visitors are encouraged to touch and interact with the artworks, photographing themselves and becoming part of the art. With over 11 themed zones to explore and each featuring hand painted artworks which cascade directly from the walls to the floors, you can immerse yourself into different scenes and locations. A must visit when in Melbourne.
Dialogue in the Dark
Dialogue in the Dark is a sensory journey set in total darkness, the only in the country, an initiative by Guide Dogs Australia, awarded Australia’s most trusted charity for 6 years in a row (2013-2018). It’s an incredible, enlightening experience where you step out of your comfort zone and take on the challenges of a bustling, simulated Melbourne in the dark. How would you respond to sensing your everyday world, rather than seeing it? Get ready to find out!
