One day in a land very close by, a world of sugared fantasy opened its doors. It’s a place of edible wonder, a paradise of candyfloss, ice-cream and sherbet. It’s called Sugar Republic and it’s the tastiest museum in Australia.
This exhibition dedicated to sugar and spice and all things nice has popped up in on Smith Street, Fitzroy in Melbourne for eight weeks of sweet delight.
The museum is all about reliving your childhood and boasts a massive pink pink bubblegum ball pit for grown-ups, a fairy floss room with its own fantastical swing, an igloo of giant donuts, an interactive sprinkles wall and walls full of sweet-themed art.
At Sugar Republic, you can jump out of a giant birthday cake, climb inside a gum ball machine, cross the sherbet-filled rainbow bridge, watch sweet themed movies in the mini cinema and spin the Wheel O’ Treats.
You can shower yourself (or your ice-cream) with sprinkles and go nuts in the larger-than life traditional lolly shop.
Free Treats, Yes Please!
And if that’s not enough, free lollies, ice cream and snacks will bring back those sweet memories as you play among the 14 fun-filled spaces.
Is It Really That Sweet?
