From 20 July to 2 September, Longleat is celebrating its newest Australian residents, who have made Koala Creek their home, with its vibrant Australian Summer event.

From 27 July, The Longhouse will transform into an indoor beach fully loaded with real sand – perfect for building masterpiece castles, deckchairs, craft activities and surf-style wobble boards.

The Main Square will also transform into the Outback, staging diverse and delightful daily performances; from high-tempo dancing, to live didgeridoo music, all the way to acrobatic breakdancing. Plus there’s the fabulous End of Day Hooroo – a vibrant spectacle of music and dancing that’s sure to get everyone’s toes tapping, feet stomping and hands clapping.
