TIDDALIK THE THIRSTY FROG

Melbourne Museum
03 January 2012 - 31 January 2012

Dance and sing along with Victoria’s legendary TIDDALIK THE THIRSTY FROG in this lively performance.

Explore this Victorian Aboriginal creation story belonging to the Gunai people of Gippsland. The story follows the thirst of a small frog whose greed has him drinking all of the world’s water, leaving all the animals and plants thirsty and withering.

How will the animals force TIDDALIK to return the water? A wise old wombat suggests that if they can make the giant, bloated frog laugh he will spill out all of the water. Will the animals make TIDDALIK laugh?
