Toddlerfest

A playful introduction to the world of science, with exciting activities designed to stimulate the imagination of those under 5.

You have reached the main content region of the page.

This winter, Toddlerfest is celebrating ‘Little Things that Move’.

We’ve designed a special program of activities that help our littlest learners make connections as to how different things move, including themselves!

Toddlerfest is all about being inquisitive and learning through play. Using our senses, we’ll discover how different animals, insects and plants move and grow. Join our puppets at the big stage for creative dance and movement exploration, head to Storytime for a special experience – or even get hands-on at The Jellyfish Station.

Early STEM education is an important part of a child’s development and Toddlerfest is the perfect way to introduce your tiny scientist to the fascinating world of science.

Designed for children aged up to 5 years and their families, this event aims to encourage science and STEM discovery through problem-solving, imagination and creativity.

Please note, dates are subject to change according to COVID-19 restrictions and government advice. For the safety of our community, online bookings are essential for this event.

Backyard Boogie

How do wiggly worms, buzzing bees, crawling caterpillars and other minibeasts move? In this dance-based activity children can use their imaginations to move their bodies like the many mini beasts they might find in their backyard or favourite park.

Let's Move

Join Gumby, Elsie, Quizzie, Dude and Gotcha on the big stage. Learn how animals and plants move in the bush with this interactive live puppet show.

Make A Jellyfish Glow

Did you know jellyfish move by pulsing through the water, making them some of the ocean’s most efficient swimmers? In this hands-on activity you can make your own jellyfish and add it to the deep sea display zone in the luminescent Kaartadjin Koorliny gallery.

A Little Space

Take off and move through space, passing satellites, planets and asteroids along the way. This immersive show has been created especially for toddlers.
