This year, there are some exciting new ancient creatures who have come to visit. Following their migratory route to seasonal feeding grounds, three ancient diprotodons have become lost in the city and have found their way to the Australian National Botanic Gardens. As they try to make their way in the altered landscape, these visitors from a forgotten time created by visual theatre masterminds Dead Puppet Society provoke a reflection on how humans have changed this island and its creatures, and the importance of the Gardens for plant and animal conservation.
Watch and interact as these life-sized diprotodons roam the Gardens for the first week of the school holidays from 1 - 7 July. In the evenings of the first week of school holidays, MEGAfauna afterDARK
