Changes to council services

Some services and opening hours are different on the Anzac Day public holiday. See affected services and times.

Boroondara Arts is proud to present a colourful and creative School Holiday Program this April.

Children aged 4-12 years are invited to enjoy a range of fun and educational performing and visual arts activities.

Does your child want to dance like Michael Jackson or paint like Van Gogh? The Boroondara Arts School Holiday Program has something for children of all abilities and provides opportunities to discover new hobbies and make new friends.   

For those little ones with a theatrical or musical streak, Peter Combe performs his new show, featuring quirky and catchy tunes that will leave them hysterics.

And if your child is drawn to the visual arts, our drawing, painting, weaving and sculpture sessions will ignite their creativity.

Bookings are now open.
