Australia Day Public Holiday Celebrations 28 January year, Australia Day activities include artists' demonstrations in the courtyard, self guided walks of Herring Island (free brochures/maps available from the gallery), one guided tour, perfect weather and the perfect opportunity for a picnic in treasured bushland. Hundreds of people can enjoy a great day on the island.

We hope to repeat this performance in 2019 - particularly by organising perfect weather in spite of Melbourne's "weather on steroids" performance.

Demonstrations Australia Day 2015

In the 2019 the artists demonstrating in the courtyard will be representing the Association of Sculptors of Victoria, the Contemporary Art Society Vic and A4 Art Australia. Plus, the ASV would like to invite children of all ages to come and join us at Herring Island to get their hands dirty at our clay modelling demonstration, observe the environment and get inspired to design and create small sculpture pieces.

Come and have a fun day, bring some friends and enjoy some time designing your masterpieces that you can then take home. (Please note that we won't be able to fire the works so they will be wet and fragile and you may prefer to reuse the clay for future sculptures). Please supervise your parents as we don't want them wandering off and getting lost.
