Welcome to a whole new world at The Royal Botanic Gardens.

The Royal Botanic Gardens invites you to join them on an adventure into the land of tiny things. Welcome to the world of The Boy Who Loved Tiny Things; a unique ninety-minute roaming theatre expedition through the majestic gardens and the Herbarium of the Royal Botanic Gardens. FYI a Herbarium is a repository of dried plant specimens, and the Melbourne Herbarium has specimens dating back to before the 1900's!

Inspired by eleven-year-old Østen Burkum's large collection of all things tiny, the Drop Bear Theatre in collaboration with RBG has brought his collection to life and created a world of wonder that is playful and curious. Participants will discover and collect hidden treasures, explore inside and around the gardens and even use torches to help capture inspiration from the world that surrounds us.

Melbourne's Herbarium houses over 1.5 million dried plant, algae and fungi specimens from all around the world.

At the end of the expedition, participants are encouraged to share one of their findings and choose a piece to take home from the collection. This experience aims for participants to slow down, notice the world around us and get creative.
