Enchanted valley

Step into the immersive Enchanted valley in the Paradise on Earth exhibition at the Museum of Sydney, on display from 7 November 2020 to 18 April 2021. 

Playful and interactive, Enchanted valley is a multi-sensory landscape full of surprise and discovery. Look out for curious animals exploring the bushland, listen for frogs croaking under stepping stones and watch as a storm rolls in over the harbour. If you look carefully, you may even spot fairies hiding under the bridge!

Enchanted valley is a digital reimagining of Castlecrag’s Haven Amphitheatre that captures the colour, textures and changing moods of the Australian bushland. Enjoy the sights, sounds, mystery and magic of the valley and wonder at nature’s hidden energies and ever-changing beauty. 

Children can also get creative in the Forces of Nature activity hub and add to the collaborative bush artwork – perch a cockatoo, hang a bat from its toes or add a bunch of leaves and help our gum trees grow!
