Booking options

Guided tour
Guided tours can be booked to suit your needs. Tours should be booked at least two weeks in advance, with any special requests regarding content included.

Self-guided visit
Simply let the gallery know when you are coming, so we can ensure that other events do not coincide with or interrupt your visit.

Professional practice workshops
Designed for Year 11 and 12 students, these specialised workshops are presented by the University Art Curator and may cover areas such as exhibition development and installation, press releases and invitations. These booking requests must be made at least one month in advance and are subject to availability.
