Skippy is one of Australia’s most successful cultural exports. The adventures of Sonny Hammond and Skippy the bush kangaroo in Waratah National Park in the late 1960s captured the country’s imagination and showcased Australia to the world. At its height, Skippy was screening in 128 countries to an audience of over 300 million viewers.
Our online exhibition celebrates over 50 years of Skippy the Bush Kangaroo with clips and compilations from the show, interviews with the cast, merchandise, music, advertisements, behind-the-scenes production materials and more.
