COVID19 Update

As part of the most recent updates to the containment plan for the Covid-19 coronavirus we have been advised by the Australian Government to temporarily close Madame Tussauds Sydney. The move is consistent with the closure of other venues and postponement of events in order to prevent further outbreak. The closure is effective across all Merlin attractions in Australia as of midday on 23rd March, 2020.  Meanwhile, rest assured, our staff will continue to feed, care for and provide enrichment opportunities for the animals in our care and our wax figures will no doubt keep each other company until we re-open.

To be kept up to date on when the attraction is scheduled to re-open, please come back and visit our website and if you have already purchased tickets to our attraction, you may use these tickets for any future date through to December 31, 2020. We look forward to delivering memorable experiences again soon.

Banjo Paterson

Banjo Paterson

Banjo Paterson was a poet, writer and horseman, whose work focused on the outback and rural areas of Australia.

Did you know?

  • Paterson's famous poem, 'Waltzing Matilda', was set to music and became one of Australia's most popular songs
  • In 1890 he wrote 'The Man from Snowy River', a poem that captured the nations heart.
  • His image appears on the Australian $10 note

That is the greatest compliment a writer can have, to know that he has written a thing so truly that people not only believe that it happened but that it happened to themselves
