Heide Museum of Modern Art (or simply “Heide” to the locals!) is a 15-acre oasis in busy Bulleen, just a 15 minute drive from Melbourne’s CBD. If you didn’t know it was there you could easily drive past!
If exploring Heide’s collection of modern and contemporary art is your thing, it’s open every day except Monday and children under 12 are free. However, if you are looking for a free family friendly activity where the kids can run wild, you can’t go past the fabulous sculpture park and kitchen garden!
Pack a picnic and sit underneath one of the many shade trees. If you prefer to purchase your meal, Café Vue at Heide is open every day except Monday and offers a diverse range of yummy, locally sourced meals and has free WiFi. If you have kids in nappies, you can utilize Café Vue’s change room facilities!
Regardless of where you have a bite to eat, the kids will love to take a walk around the Heide grounds exploring the different sculptures – they can even play detective with downloadable activity sheets. Click here to download.
Heide also have programs for kids and families such as Heide Art Bubs, Family Day or kid’s school holiday activities.
For little kids who want to play on
everything something, you might want to have a picnic at Heide, a little look around and then go for a play at the Wombat Bend Playspace which is in Duncan Street, Lower Templestowe.
