“Ginger and his gang will also be on the big screen getting up to all sorts of antics.

“While the little mischief-maker turns 100 this year, he’s still Australia’s 10-year-old red-haired larrikin and Australia’s longest-running comic strip.”

Swing by the National Cartoon Gallery and see why Ginger Meggs has captured Australian audiences for 100 years and relive your own childhood memories.

The exhibition runs until 28 February 2020.

Keep an eye on the website and Facebook for school holiday workshops coming in January.

Also showing is the Rotary Cartoon Awards, back for their 33rd year, in an exhibition that runs until 6 March.

“Cartoonists and caricaturists have a wicked sense of humour and nowhere more so than in the fiercely competitive Rotary Cartoon Awards.

“Come and see what the best cartoonists in the country have been sweating over for the past few months as they lampoon our politicians,” said Chris.

On your visit choose your own ‘winning work’ in our People’s Choice competition with six lucky people winning one of six amazing prizes.
