the wind in the willows botanic gardens 

Pack a picnic and the car - you're going on an adventure! The Wind in the Willows is a fantastic outdoors summer gathering with the family. As the sun sets slowly over the Botanical Gardens you'll be treated to the mis-demeanors and mishaps of the famous characters Ratty, Mole, Badger, Otter, Portly and, of course, Mr Toad, along with a few more for good company.

You the audience will be included in songs and activities, and you'll even be made to pack up your picnic blankets and refreshments and go on an adventure with the characters to Toad Hall for more hilarious fun.

The kids will join the animals on a search for the otter children in the woods (you can join your little ones if you like) and can follow along. Meanwhile the Toad Hall audience will be kept thoroughly entertained if you do decide to stay put.

This is one of those Summer in Melbourne events thats just got to be experienced at least once!
