Nature Photography

Nature Photography Workshop Australian Museum
Budding photographers will love this interactive workshop!


With separate classes geared towards children and teens, creative kids will love exploring how to capture nature’s best angles. Children will partake in fun photography challenges using your own camera, smartphone or tablet with expert Thomas Covell.

In the teen class, participants will visit the Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year exhibition for inspiration, before using their point-and-shoot cameras to learn tricks of the trade and practice looking at the world with an artistic eye.

For kids that can’t come into the museum, there’s also an online option—an interactive webinar that will inspire children and teens to explore, focus and capture the world around us! More information here.

Prehistoric Playground

Prehistoric Playground The Australian Museum
So much fun is waiting to be had at the Australian Museum's Prehistoric Playground!


An awesome new stomping ground for even the littlest of dinosaur buffs (the Playground is suitable for ages 3 and up!), children will absolutely love helping the Museum’s resident palaeontologists excavate and clean a real 75-million-year-old fossil at the Prehistoric Playground!

They can then discover which plants and animals once inhabited a Jurassic swamp only a few hours from Sydney, then colour their own dinosaur and see it come to life on the museum’s 9m projection. Kids will love learning how feathers and wings have evolved for flight by making their own aerodynamic nature objects. More information here.
