StoryCraft: Lost and Found - The Great Sheep Hunt

Just like Baarack, some sheep have got lost in the Museum and we need your help to round up the flock!

Share some classic children’s books and rhymes, hunt for the sheep in the Museum and finish with some hands-on craft to make a woolly sheep to take home.

Who is Baarack the Lost Sheep?

Earlier this year, a rogue merino sheep made headlines when he was found roaming bushland in Victoria in desperate need of sheering.

Affectionately named Baarack, he was shorn of his 35 kilograms fleece to save his life and went on to worldwide fame.

Baarack, was once owned and had somehow escaped from his farm. Merino sheep don't shed their fleece and need to be shorn at least once a year as their fleece continues to grow.

While Baarack's fleece was impressive in size, it's still several kilograms off the world record of 41.1 kilograms.

Baarack the Lost Sheep's fleece will be on display at the Museum from 12 June 2021.

Your ticket includes entry to the museum for one accompanying adult. The accompanying adult is required to stay at the Museum for the duration of the activity. Recommended for 2-5 years, accompanying adult and infants free.
