There’s also the START Art Club. It’s FREE to join and there are heaps of benefits to enhance your Art Gallery visits. Once signed up, each child receives a personalised START Art Club card and lanyard, a visual diary to record their art sketches, scribbles and creative designs. The club gives kids a chance to learn and practise different techniques and on every third visit they will receive a new art material to add to their collection. It’s recommended for kids aged 5-10 years old and there’s the added bonus of a 10% discount on children’s books and merchandise at the Gallery Shop on START days.

Transport to the gallery is easy, due to its location on North Terrace. There’s plenty of parking in nearby multi-storey carparks, or you can catch a bus, tram or train into the city and walk along the beautiful North Terrace to the gallery. There’s plenty of cafe’s nearby, plus the cafe within the Art Gallery itself. There are grassed areas nearby if you prefer to eat your lunch outside and there’s often great food carts along North Terrace offering yummy, cheap food the kids will love!
