Sleepovers are always exciting for kids but even more exciting in they sleep over in a place that is usually filled with amazing exhibitions and not sleeping bags. We have found some of the best upcoming family friendly sleepover events around Australia this summer!

  • Mammoth Megasnore 12th-13th January 2018
    Australian Museum
    Sleep next to giants and get a private exhibition viewing of Mammoths: Giants of the Ice Age and screening of family favourite Ice Age the movie. Venture on a torchlight tour and meet some Australian megafauna along the way. In the morning you will wake to breakfast at our rooftop cafe overlooking Sydney Harbour and Botanic Gardens, after which you can try your hand at creating your own Palaeolithic art carving of a soapstone mammoth, dire wolf or cave bear.
