Guided Walks of Art
Guided Walks of Art

Art tours that connect.

Join us on a unique walk of art and explore the heART of St Kilda.

To meet the artist behind a work is to meet its soul. The insight gained from listening to an artist speak of their journey and process on our art tours creates a deeper connection to the art itself; taking the piece from a mere object to a living thing with story, history and energy.

On St Kilda Art Tours’ guided walks, you will explore unique, quality art works (and some of the equally unique people behind them) in a variety of art forms including indigenous and multi-cultural paintings, modern contemporary and abstract art as well as glass blowing and bespoke lighting and sculptures.
