Do you believe in the power of IMAGINATION?

Pat Malone's Magic Garden is a fun-filled interactive journey of exploration and creativity for families.

Blending physical theatre, circus and dance with a good old fashioned 'Aussie yarn', this iconic piece has been adored by children and adults alike. 

Join Pat Malone, a bush adventurer and Mythical Creature Researcher as he embarks on specialized research into Autonomous Imaginary Species, or A.I.S.

These are creatures that begin in the imagination and then become real, physical creatures that have a life all of their own! This might sound crazy and how it’s even possible… but you have to believe!

Along the way, you will meet mythical Australian creatures, observe them in their habitat, be mesmerised by their surprising behaviors, and share the laughs as each has a physical encounter with Pat.

So don't miss this show, which is guaranteed to entertain, delight and move young audiences, as they uncover a world full of hidden magic.
