Make your own mascot

Look for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games mascots Syd, Olly and Millie, and see Betty, the giant kewpie doll that was part of the Closing Ceremony.

Then pick up one of our activity packs and get creative. Using the craft materials supplied, make your own mascot — for your sporting team, an event, anything! Work in our Gandel Atrium or take your pack home.
