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 and 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.
Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
