The Concept

Our Performing Arts tour provides students with an opportunity to travel, learn about responsibility and grow in confidence while participating in a range of workshops designed to further their knowledge of themselves and their art. This is a popular program for many schools across Australia visiting Melbourne, the NIDA workshop and matinee performance as major highlights of this 3 day tour.

Itinerary Day By Day


On arrival you will be transferred by private coach to your city accommodation. Drop your bags before heading to your NIDA workshop. Note that it is your own arrangements for lunch – there is a café on site, but often students will pack their own lunch for the day (no fruit!). This afternoon, make your way to Circus OZ for your performance workshop before returning to the hotel later this afternoon.Dinner tonight is included at the hotel.

Teachers please note – It is very easy to catch a tram from the city to NIDA (Collingwood) and from there a short walk to Circus OZ. Therefore we have costed in public transport cards for your group, however if you prefer to have coach transfers please let us know and we will cost this for you.


After breakfast, walk down to the Australian Centre for the Moving Image to see their latest exhibition and participate in an ACMI workshop (subject to availability – difficult to confirm in school holidays). Own arrangements for lunch at Federation Square at any of the food trucks or cafes nearby. This afternoon, it’s back to NIDA for your second performance workshop before returning to the hotel later this afternoon. Dinner tonight is included at the hotel.


After breakfast check out and walk to the Melbourne Arts Centre where you will explore the labyrinth beneath the famous spire and uncover the fascinating history of the arts precinct. View the vast underground theatres and discover highlights from the world-renowned Performing Arts Collection. The tour will also encompass current gallery exhibitions and the significant Australian artworks found throughout the Art Centre foyer. After the tour, participate in a Melbourne Arts Centre education program. Own arrangements for lunch before you head back to your hotel to get your bags, returning home later this afternoon.

Please note – Schools often choose to see a matinee theatre performance on Day 3. If so then another nights accommodation is required. Please contact us for more details.
