Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Charming and funny shows with excellent puppetry and storytelling. There’s a chance to interact with the puppeteers and play with some puppets both before and after the show. Meeting Duffy the Donkey is a particular highlight for kids and grown-ups alike! A highly recommended way to spend an hour or two on Sunday.

What a delightful experience for the family. Get there early to meet Sue and Steve and ruby the dog as well as play with the puppets. The show was imaginative and playful. Wonderful morning!

Absolutely delightful!! Beautiful craftsmanship and performance. Even the 1 year old was enthralled. Raving about it to everyone, such a gem.

My sisters and I took our kids aged 1.5 - 7 years to see the puppet show at Imaginarta recently and absolutely loved it! The couple who run the show are so lovely and welcoming. The kids can sit right up close to the stage and engage with the show. The puppets are beautiful and creative. The hall was warm (we went in winter) and there were plenty of cushions for the floor and seats as well. I wish there were puppet shows in Sydney I would take my kids regularly but we’ll be back for the next show at Imaginarta. It’s a comfortable and easy drive from Sydney about 1.5 hours and we enjoyed a lunch at a nearby winery afterwards too

Enjoyed the show today with 2 Grandchildren. Felt so welcomed, and all the children waiting for the show were offered hand puppets to experiment with. We were also offered colourful rugs to add comfort. Such a variety of puppets appeared in the show, lovingly handled by the puppeteers. Yes it's a must see!

A very special puppet show and unique experience in the Southern Highlands. The puppetry is very professional, with stories that are both beautiful and funny. Escape into another world on a Sunday morning!

What a wonderful gem we have in the Australian Puppet Centre, everyone, adult or child should put this on their list, it is a must see on your next trip to the highlands
Sue & Steve are the ultimate professionals and just lovely folk, we had the family visiting and it was a revelation to the 5 year old, to be immersed in the magic of puppetry in such an enchanting atmosphere
I would implore school groups to add this to their activities

We had a lovely time at the show. Sue and Steve are amazing and we highly recommend this show for anyone with kids or an interest in art and theatre. The show was engaging, humorous and very thoughtfully done. It was fun for the whole family.

I am a visitor to Sutton Forest and I was looking for some fun things to do! Not only did all the kids there enjoy the puppet show but I really enjoyed the show too. We watch the show called ‘Things With Wings’. Sue and Steve were very enthusiastic and engaging with everyone. I will definitely recommend this puppet show to all my friends and I will absolutely go back there when visiting Sutton Forest again.

Sue and Steve have a brilliant show for kids and young adults, older adults too, each Sunday. They are gifted puppet people and provide a truly enthralling show, such good entertainment. I took my grandchildren and they have not stopped talking about their experience.
They craft the puppets themselves and the story line is quite humerous, I thoroughly enjoyed it myself.
This is a must for anyone living locally and also for visitors to the Southern Highlands.
