Take your children on an inspirational journey through the landscapes and stories of Australia these school holidays. Barking Gecko Theatre Company and Act-Belong-Commit are bringing the internationally acclaimed Saltbush to Perth children for the very first time.

Saltbush centres on the journey of two friends as they cross Australia on foot. You journey with them as they travel across river country, urban landscapes, the desert and the sea, in an immersive exquisite artwork that will enchant young and old.

Children don’t just watch the show they are invited to get onstage explore, play and dance with the performers as the landscape unfolds around them, providing a unique immersive experience where the audience becomes part of this visually beautiful tale.

This event is supported by MRA, State Theatre Centre of WA and Act - Belong - Commit.
