IMAGINATE featuring Pip & Pop : Sunshine Daydream

15 Jun to 7 Jul 2024

This winter, Noosa Regional Gallery will transform into a sweet, pastel wonderland for the anticipated return of IMAGINATE: a biennial exhibition event for children

IMAGINATE provides an exciting opportunity to be ‘in the moment’; to connect with others, immerse yourself in art, and enjoy the exhilarating process of making!


Step into the magical world of Sunshine Daydream, created by Australian artists, Pip and Pop!

Discover an enchanted dreamlike place; a land of vibrant plant life, swirling in a pastel rainbow! Sunshine Daydream is a place where art and nature collide, igniting the senses to spark your curiosity. This fantastical landscape is inspired by the beautiful flora found in our very own Noosa biosphere reserve.

  • Get ready to roll at the Poppin’ Pins Bowling Alley!


  • Make a flower for display, create 3D paper sculptures, and construct colourful puppets at one of the many exciting creation stations!
