Rapt in Reptiles features over 250 pieces of mixed media artwork highlighting reptiles of the Riverland.

Snakes, frogs, turles, lizards, geckos and reptile predators using paint, ceramics, collage and textiles have all been used to make this a colourful and creative display. Visiting the gallery during the school holidays will be one of the "must do activities" for both children and adults alike. A number of interactive activities are on hand as the gallery is also a learning destination site for those students involved with the Children's University Programme.

Written and directed by Jon Stewart, Irresistible is a comedy about what happens when a small Wisconsin town becomes the main attraction of our political circus. After the Democrat’s top strategist Gary (Steve Carell) sees a video of a retired Marine Colonel (Chris Cooper) standing up for the rights of his town’s undocumented workers, Gary believes he has found the key to winning back the Heartland. However, when the Republicans counter him by sending in his brilliant nemesis Faith (Rose Byrne), what started out as a local race quickly becomes an out-of-control and hilarious fight for the soul of America.
