About this event

Bettong and Buddies follows Rufous, a young bettong realising his dream to become a violinist.  On this hilarious journey, he encounters other creatures in the Australian bush, who teach him and the audience, what it means to be a critical member of his ecosystem. 

Bettong and Buddies is full of surprises. Is that a real Owl sitting in that tree? What else might you see?

Each new animal friend Rufous meets on his adventure gives him a gift which, when put together at the end, forms one very special surprise that will strike a chord!

After the show meet some of our unique endangered wildlife and have a pat and a hold. 

Sit extra close to the action with our VIP seating, be the nearest to our live native animals! Interactive educational session included. 

Performers: Curtis Shipley (Pirates on the Popeye), Gigi Pinwill (Flowers for Algernon) and Melanie Munt (Lockie Leonard)

Director: Andi Snelling (Happy-Go-Wrong)
