Activities & Educational Resources
Below is a range of activities and resources available for learning before, during, or after your museum visit.
We recommend that a prior visit to the Centre by teachers may be beneficial. You can also contact our curators prior to your visit if you require any further assistance relating to resources or history topics.
Curator-led tours are available Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Volunteers happily provide a short welcome Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.
School and community group visits to Tom Moore: Abundant Wonder are self-guided, bookings are essential.
The Story of The Great Emu In The Sky
Australia has been occupied for over 65,000 years. First Nations Australians have an amazing relationship with the land and use storytelling to teach us about culture and history.
Listen to Aunty Clair Jackson tell the amazing story of the great emu in the sky when she speaks to the host of the That's Incredible podcast, Andrew Daddo. That's Incredible! is a podcast for parents and kids.
On your visit to the museum, can you find the Great Emu in the Sky? It can be viewed from two different levels!
Aunty Clair Jackson begins speaking at the 10.04 mark.
