Virtual Excursions

Online and distance groups

What will you experience?

All our live video programs encourage participants to explore new ideas, ways of seeing and to respond creatively, in order to understand and appreciate Australian history, people and art.

Our tours are very flexible and can be tailored to almost any area of Australian history, society and culture. With over 3000 portraits of prominent Australians, there’s a lot to explore. And our drawing and self-expression exercises can bring out the artist in anybody!

How does it work?

Virtual tours are 60-minute cultural programs where your group has access to a National Portrait Gallery tour guide and educator via video conferencing. 

You simply connect using a laptop or a computer with a webcam. Connect the computer to a large screen so an audience can watch and participate.

Make a booking and the Gallery will email you more information with instructions on how to connect with us.
