NGV TEMPORARY CLOSURE

From our team here at NGV, we’d like to express our very best wishes to our community at this time.

Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 and after following closely the State and Federal Government’s advice, we have extended the NGV’s temporary closure until 30 June.

If you have pre-purchased tickets for current exhibitions or upcoming programs, our team will be in contact with you shortly to arrange full refunds.

We encourage you to visit our website and follow #NGVEveryDay on social media for updates and daily inspiration.

We are very grateful for the loyalty and understanding of the NGV community and wish everyone well during this time.

Hybrid Coastal Defence

Presented by Open House Melbourne, National Centre for Coasts and Climate and Reef Design Lab

Sorry you missed this one!

Explore the newly installed mangrove project at Altona Coastal Park, Grantville and Lang Lang. Reef Design Lab and Melbourne University’s National Centre for Coasts and Climate are investigating coastal defence by mass planting Victoria’s native southern mangrove species inside a specially designed planter. Exploring the use of natural habitats to reduce wave height and accumulate sand, custom designed mangrove planters have been integrated with direct planting of mangrove seeds. As the mangroves get bigger, they can reduce wave height and accumulate sediment themselves, protecting the foreshore from erosion.
