Please note due to unforeseen circumstances, the Animals of the Dreaming performance will no longer taken place on 22 and 23 April. Instead on Saturday 23 April visitors can enjoy an interactive show featuring native animals from the team at Australian Wildlife Displays. We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

The animals are coming to visit Elizabeth Farm these April school holidays!

Inspired by Museum of Sydney’s How to Move a Zoo exhibition, this two-day program of fun activities for families will take over the beautiful gardens and grounds of the property. 

Spot the playful animal illustrations, go wild and get creative in our activity hub, and try to identify the animal sounds in the garden. Plus, we’ll be visited by the Taronga Zoomobile team and Brewarrina Elder Colin Hardy OAM, who’ll present their Animals of the Dreaming show on Friday and join Australian Wildlife Displays on Saturday to meet some of Australia's unique native fauna.

These activities take place outdoors and are included with museum admission.
