A colourful comedy show outdoors is a highlight this January for the kids with Tiddalik the Frog - a famous Aboriginal legend brought to life by performers singing songs and telling the story of this amphibian who drinks all of the world's water. Within a 3D pop-up storybook, life-size puppets and music are used to unfold the tale in this theatre experience that has already been a big hit in other venues around the country.
It's on from 9-23 January (weekdays only) and runs for 45mins from 11am. The cost is $15 per child with accompanying adults and under 2 year olds free. Head to the Learning Centre in the Education Precinct off Dickens Drive.
