Australian Wine Night - SOLD OUT

Laughing Kookaburra

Drink up in the land Down Under! We’re celebrating Australia Day with a special new event for the 21-plus crowd. Enjoy light fare and complimentary tastings of Australian wine accompanied by interactive didgeridoo performances. Sip on something you like? Buy a glass of your new favorite vino at our cash bar!

You’ll have the opportunity to explore Australia’s wild side with an insider’s tour of our Animal Planet Australia: Wild Extremes exhibit, led by curator John Seyjagat. Get close to more than 1,800 animals from one of the most remote regions of the planet, including freshwater crocodiles, turtles, birds and lizards. Be sure to catch one of our animal feedings and get hands-on with our Australian animal artifacts while you’re at it!

Nothing pairs better with wine than art, so we’ll also be showing “Nature in the Dark,” a captivating video series created by artists around the world, throughout the evening. Produced by Jan Hendrik Brueggemeier of La Trobe University’s Centre for Creative Arts and Marnie Benney of the Maryland Institute College of Art, the video series creatively showcases animal life in Victoria, Australia, drawing inspiration from scientific fauna surveys.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up to get your sip on!

Price: $30 for general public; $20 for members
