Event details

Diverse peoples and history have shaped the city we recognise today. MOTAT's interactive experiences bring the past to life, revealing the stories of early migrants and what drew them to our shores.

Get hands-on with history and become a settler for a day as you discover the realities of life on the gum fields, or experience the thrill of gold fever. Seek out hidden accounts of those who left all they knew behind, to make new homes in a far-off land. You can even share your own family's story!

Activities are included free with standard MOTAT admission. Please visit our website for more information.
