The Great Aussie Backyard

When we think of the traditional Aussie backyard, many of us conjure up images of hot summers, barbeques, a Hills Hoist or a friendly game of cricket. We also think of space but, since the 1990s, Australian backyards have been shrinking in size. What impact is this having on our lifestyles and the environment?

Come and explore the evolution of the backyard from the outhouse to the outdoor room. Discover ways to make your backyard wildlife-friendly and create your own backyard invention. Spend time playing backyard games too! A fun interactive exhibition for all ages.

This exhibition is developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
