The Tweed Regional Museum will expand into the streets of Murwillumbah on January 28 for an epic street party inspired by the Capturing Nature exhibition.

The Megafauna party will feature roaming giant Diprotodon puppets, activities for all ages, live music, prizes, and food and drink stalls.

Giant Diprotodon puppets will roam the Museum surroundings, lost in a jungle made of concrete, interacting with (but probably not eating) passersby.

There will also be a one-of-a-kind open-air puppetry performance from Australian visual theatre masterminds Dead Puppet Society.

Music will be provided by Live music by fiery bohemian rockers, Felicity Lawless and Elena Marcigot.

Patrons will of course also be able to visit the Museum’s latest offering, Capturing Nature, and learn all about preservation and conservation with our dynamic range of workshops held by eco-warriors, artists, curators and animal experts.

This includes becoming a Green Hero citizen scientist and capturing important data by surveying the Great Barrier Reef, creating a wildlife rescue kit, and making a nature Mandala while learning about Glossy Black-Cockatoos.

There will also be the chance to chat with our dedicated local Australian seabird and turtle rescuers of seabirds, shorebirds, sea turtles and sea snakes and explore their amazing interactive marine and biodegradable object display.

Participants can embody a threatened species and roar with the Diprotodon, tackle a large-scale Adventure Game with Museum Mates, dig for fossils like a real-life palaeontologist and add animals to the Museum’s street mural.
