In this first episode we examine arts and culture, and how travellers can not only join the audience in iconic Australian artistic venues but also explore behind the curtain, with exclusive access to once-in-a-lifetime, immersive cultural experiences. We’ll take you behind the scenes at Opera Australia and backstage at the Sydney Opera House. We’ll also tell the fascinating story of the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne and reveal the extraordinary vision of the man who created a venue unlike any other, the Museum of Old and New Art in Tasmania.
