We lost power for the night. I am not a big fan of cricket, so I could cope with the loss. Spending a hot night in the dark was not the ideal scenario for Australia Day, though!

And of course there are plenty of photos of my silly monkeys!
We saw two very contented sulfur crested cockatoos. They let me come very close for these photos. As you can see, I was regarded as a bit of a curiosity!
In all, a lovely way to spend some time together.

And here are my three children, Happy, Grumpy and, in the background, Silly! Joshua napped through most of the Exhibition, much to the relief of myself and countless other library patrons. He made it known that he did not wish to be there right before he crashed! Samara and Christopher enjoyed the kid's brochure they were given as we entered. In each section they had to locate an item, given a partial picture as a clue. Then they had to complete a task relating to the item. For Ned Kelly's helmet they had to draw a picture of what it would look like looking out of the helmet, etc.
The treasures exhibited were so exciting to an amateur historian such as myself! Henry Lawson's pen, a full convict uniform, Captain Cook's ships log, and so many other amazing items. I could have stayed there all day, but ended up resorting to buying the guide book, a wealth of extra information. I found it all very inspiring.
