Arleye (Emu) – Children’s Play Area – Desert Park

A fun, colourful and interactive game of discovery for children (and adults) of all ages.

Illuminated round discs form the shape of a giant Emu footprint, which is eight metres in diameter. As children jump from one disc to another they activate different colours, and via an accompanying light-box the installation imparts scientific knowledge about the traditional uses of the emu for food and medicinal practices.

Apmere (home) – Desert Park

Over in Desert Park, gather with friends and family at Apmere (home) and marvel at the spectacular Ranges Show and illuminated sculptures.
