We've pulled together some activities to help entertain and inspire the kids these school holidays. 
As COVID still impacts many face to face activities we've found some you can enjoy online including our own Kinder Kulture at Home series!

Murray Arts would love to see photos of what you create so tag us in social media.


Kinder Kulture is Murray Arts & burraja gallery’s annual kinder & pre-school education program, which see’s local First Nation artists deliver interactive, fun and engaging workshops for our regions young ones. These workshops are developed to give children a better understanding of Aboriginal culture and to educate and celebrate Aboriginal arts and culture as part of NAIDOC week acknowledgement. This year, as we have not been able to visit our local early learning centres and in response, we have developed Kinder Kulture At Home, a series of interactive workshops led by local artist & Curator of burraja gallery Bethany Thornber (Wiradjuri) and directed by Murray Arts Aboriginal Arts Officer Tiffany Ward (Yorta Yorta). These digital workshops are designed for young ones but can equally be enjoyed by those young at heart. Follow along at home and learn how to make bush dolls, pinch pots and story trees.

Each day is separated into age ranges and will be limited to 4 people maximum to comply with COVID safety protocols.

Mountain Goat Mountain is an audio-led theatre experience for families to do in their home together.

With guided activities that help families set up, and step into their own imaginative world, Mountain Goat Mountain is a unique experience for adults and children to do together that provides space for creative connection through play and imagination.

A family pass is valid for 30 days. More info and book here

P.S. I did Mountain Goat Mountain recently with friends and LOVED it. Don't be surprised if the adults enjoy it as much (or in my case, more, than the kids!) Nat
