At the Australian Museum we have created a space just for our ngarang gamarada-niya (little friends). The Tiny Tots program introduces babies and toddlers to First Nations history, culture, educational practices and concepts, allowing your little ones to explore the world around them through music, craft, games and play. All materials are provided and each class is run by a member from our First Nations team.
