Learn more about the lifecycle and journey of burra (eel) from the Pacific Ocean down the East Australian Current to Sydney Harbour.
Burra takes visitors on a fascinating learning journey through Country in an exciting new state-of-the-art education space that immerses visitors in Western science and First Nations knowledge.
This learning and play space traces the incredible migration of burra (eel) along estuaries and rivers, across rockpools and out to sea. Visitors follow the life-cycle of this surprisingly resilient fish, teaching families about our environment, the Australian Museum’s science, and the importance of caring for Country and each other.
Burra is a truly unique experience in the heart of Gadigal Country, and features artwork by Jasmine Miikika Craciun, Barkindji, Malyangapa. Children are invited to touch, listen and see while exploring the giant burra, sensory walls and interactive play zones.
