school holiday art walk

If you have exhausted the usual school holiday haunts and are looking for something else to do these school holidays, then this could be for you!

Whilst Prahran has always been a hub for fine art, it now boats at least 7 art galleries; all in and around the Greville Street Precinct.

It’s fun, free, and will open the kids’ eyes to a whole heap of new and diverse art, both in style and medium.

My recommendation is to catch the train to Prahran Station (or park in the Cato Street car park if you’re driving).

  • Start with us at one hundredth gallery – 49 Porter Street
  • After seeing our photography exhibition, walk down Porter Street and turn left into Greville Street to see Art Boy – 99 Greville Street
  • Head down Greville Street and turn right into St. Edmonds Road to Rtist – 29 St. Edmonds Road
  • Then to Helen Gory Galerie – 25 St. Edmonds Road
  • Walk down St. Edmonds Rd and turn left into High Street
  • Walk down High Street, cross over Chapel Street to see Carbon Black – 188 High Street
  • Head back down High Street and turn right into Chapel Street
  • Walk down Chapel street and turn right into Carlton Street to see Anna Pappas Gallery – 2 Carlton Street
  • Keep heading down Carlton Street and turn left into Little Chapel Street
  • Cross the road to see Chapel off Chapel – 12 Little Chapel Street
  • From there, continue down Little Chapel Street to Malvern Road/Commercial Road
  • Turn left and head to the Prahran Market for some lunch

And you’re done!

Seven galleries in around 2 hours.

All free, all diverse, and all interesting.
