Tales from the Flyway  takes you on a journey following the path of migratory shore birds, from south-east Australia to Siberia, along the East Asian Australasian Flyway. The show is playful and occasionally enlightening.

The Amazing Case of Dr Ward and other stories asks the question: when you bite into a mango, spread a picnic rug under a shady elm or pop a fuchsia bud, do you ever wonder, how these plants come to be in Australia?

 *Our Amazing Case was made for us by the Hobson's Bay Men's Shed. It is a scaled down replica based of one of the oldest Wardian cases held in Kew Gardens. Cases like these were used to transport plants around the world from 1833 -1962

Off site in the Port Fairy township
