Gogo digital guide
The Gogo digital guide provides additional information on more than 250 specially-selected items on display at Boola Bardip. It allows visitors to take a ‘highlights’ tour around each of the eight exhibition galleries using their own devices. This resource can provide structure to your self-guided excursion and elevate engagement with the galleries.
Visit the Gogo digital guide page for more information on how you can access this resource.

Years K – 6 | 1 adult per 6 students
Years 7 – 12 | 1 adult per 10 students
