Croydon

Croydon, an outer eastern suburb of Melbourne at the foot of the Dandenongs, developed in the 1850s about a familiar cluster of public buildings that seeded many an Australian township - two churches, a school, a post office and two pubs, the Brushy Creek Hotel and the Dew Drop Inn.

The railway opened in 1882, about the time David Mitchell, father of a daughter the world was about to toast as Nellie Melba, bought the local butcher shop.

Today Croydon is a thriving municipality, whose heritage is recorded in the Historical Society Museum in Civic Square. The Wyreena Community Arts Centre has developed round two historic homes and gardens.

There are several flora and fauna reserves, most of which are laced with bushwalking tracks and picnic areas.

Presenting the irresistible combination of nursery, gallery, craft shop and education centre, the Gumnut Village specialises in Australian native plants. Its pivotal Austraflora Gardens embrace a kitchen garden, a mudbrick rotunda, a fern and rainforest glade, rockpools, waterpools and a picnic area.

Opera Australia's El Kid


The party animals of Seville are off to the fiesta, but weird little Diego is left behind, no oddballs allowed. However, in a classic showdown of brains versus brawn, El Kid proves that fortune favours the bold and even the smallest of things can blossom into something fabulous.

Designed to introduce young audiences to the wonder, passion and drama of opera, this 50-minute family musical explores the courage you find when you believe in yourself by reimagining the much loved story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff and setting it to the glorious melodies of Bizet's Carmen.

Opera Australia have developed this brand new production especially for Victorian school students, offering a range of curriculum-based teacher resources to help classes explore classical music using a familiar fairytale. Professional singers perform the most popular of Bizet's memorable tunes with colourful costumes and an enchanting set to keep kids of all ages entertained.
