This performance takes place outside in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne and is presented in “picnic theatre” style. This means, you sit on the grass or on a picnic blanket during the show.

About The Wind in the Willows

Join Ratty, Mole, Badger, Otter, Portly, and, of course, Mr Toad as they bring Kenneth Grahame’s immortal story of life on the riverbank to the stage!

This critically acclaimed outdoor theatre production delivers music, songs, and laughs. There is fun for young and old as the Head Chief Rabbit transforms the audience into rabbits with a waggle of the ears and a wiggle of the nose. The young ‘rabbits’ are encouraged to get involved in the action and are given every opportunity to scream out loud, sing along and become part of the adventure. With laughs and surprises for children and adults, this is interactive theatre at its best.

Now playing for over 30 years in the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, The Wind in the Willows is Australia’s best-loved affordable family entertainment, so pack a picnic, grab the kids and join in the fun!
