People worldwide seem to fear Australian wildlife. And we get it — most of what the internet sees is venomous snakes slithering into boots and dinner plate-sized huntsmans. In reality, Australia is home to a beautiful and varied range of wildlife, and you can see it all like never before at Creatures of Australia.

This interactive cinematic experience will take over the Fever Pavilion in Sydney Showground from Friday, July 5 to Friday, August 23. Split across six distinct digital 'environments', it's not only a celebration of native wildlife but the people who've dedicated their lives to protecting them and their homes.

The Creatures Gallery contains ten massive screens, each playing close-up, slow-motion footage of koalas, echidnas, sulphur cockatoos and saltwater crocodiles. You'll watch and listen to stories from the handlers and researchers who work tirelessly to protect our wildlife.

You'll also find a series of interactive environments, like the Wild Walk, a space with a reactive habitat underfoot, and Spotlight on Conservation, where you can admire endangered species up close while hearing real-world conservation stories. Finally, you can end with a restful immersion in audio from the Australian wild.

If you have any junior zoologists in your life, or if you want to ditch the next episode of Planet Earth for something more immersive, this is the perfect event for you.

Creatures of Australia runs from Friday, July 5, to Friday, August 23, at Fever Pavilion. For more information or to book tickets, visit the website
