We visit Heide every year when we visit Melbourne ! The entrance is 18 dollar. We like the work of Tucker. They have a good collection, and every year we see something different. We didn’t like the work of Jenny Watson.... but maybe someone does...?

Picnic lunch would be perfect and there is no charge to go in the grounds. Not sure about dogs but you could ring Heidi and find out. The grounds are large so I imagine there would be no problem.
