George the Farmer
9th of November 2017

George the Farmer is a fun-loving character who is everyone’s friend.

With his trusty dog Jessie by his side, George tackles the day to day activities of Australian farming life with enthusiasm, a can-do attitude and most importantly a big smile.  This award-winning fictional farmer teaches children where food and fibre come from through books and songs.

The George the Farmer and friends performance includes a lively book reading of their latest picture book, ‘George the Farmer, Ruby and the Dairy Dilemma’ where the key characters are investigating a pooey problem at a nearby robotic dairy.

Meet Graham
20 October – 26 November

THE ONLY PERSON DESIGNED TO SURVIVE ON OUR ROADS

As much as we like to think we’re invincible, we are not. Graham shows us what we might look like if we were built to survive a crash.

By highlighting our own vulnerability, Graham helps us understand why we need to protect ourselves on the roads by being safer drivers, driving safer vehicles and building safer roads.

World-renowned Melbourne artist Patricia Piccinini collaborated with the Transport Accident Commission, Royal Melbourne Hospital trauma surgeon Christian Kenfield and Monash University Accident Research Centre crash investigation expert Dr David Logan to create Graham.
