Art Gallery
“Stepping into a world of optical illusions, the larger-than-life murals allow people of all ages to come face to face with wild animals, scale rocky crevasses and surf the ultimate pipelines. Stretching over 1400 square metres, visitors can walk through a variety of different zones, each with its own spectacular illusions. ArtVo offers everyone the chance to experience the traditional art museum in a whole new way. It offers their patrons the opportunity, to not only touch the art but be the art by simply striking a pose in front of the camera. What is even more refreshing are the museum staff who encourage you to take as many photos and selfies as possible. They can assist you, so you and your friends are free to become part of the art at all times. 15 artists, 1000 litres of paint, 800 hours and over 80 new artworks.”

Creperie
“If you long for the little laneways of Saint-Michel to experience some of the tastiest crepes, look no further than the back streets of Melbourne. Here the crepes both sweet and savoury will catapult your senses back to Parisian streets and their succulent crepe flavours. ”
