This year as part of Enlighten Festival, Canberra Centre has installed three “Mini Beasts” across the centre that react to movement with light, sound and brilliant colour. These insects stand up to 4 metres in height so make sure you take the time to interact with the Neon Cuckoo Bee, Cicada and Swallowtail Butterfly until the 25th March. Plus, on the 5th and 12th March Canberra Centre has partnered with the National Zoo to run a meet and greet session with some of the zoo’s favourite reptiles. You will find them between 11am-2pm on the Ground Level, outside R.M. Williams
