Return to Nim’s Island – National Premiere at Australia Zoo

If you hurry, you can still buy tickets for the Return to Nim’s Island premiere on March 17 at Australia Zoo. What a wonderful place for it! (I’ve never been there before, so I’m especially excited. Okay, I’m excited about the whole event. Imaginary characters, no matter how much you love them, are not the same as your real children, but seeing the premiere of their movie is still a bit like seeing your child graduate.)

Of course the zoo is also Bindi Irwin’s home – no wonder she’s so perfect for Nim. 

The Nim Stories will hit Australian shops on March 20, but my publisher has kindly rushed copies to the Zoo’s Crocoseum Boutique, and I’ll be signing copies between 2:00 and 3:00. If you already have a copy of Nim’s Island or Nim at Sea I’ll be  happy to sign those for you too. 

Stay after dark at Australia Zoo for the RETURN TO NIM’S ISLAND national movie premiere!
Join our very own wildlife warrior, Bindi Irwin, her co-star Toby Wallace and author, Wendy Orr on Sunday 17 March for the national premiere of RETURN TO NIM’S ISLAND at Australia Zoo in our world famous Crocoseum!
The writer and producer of the smash hit NIM’S ISLAND brings you the much anticipated sequel RETURN TO NIM’S ISLAND, featuring Bindi Irwin, in a wild ride filled with pristine beaches, exotic animals, dastardly pirates and all your favourite characters from the original. When Jack and Nim learn that the Buccaneer Resort Company has purchased Nim’s Island, Jack heads to the city to convince the powers that be that the island is worth preserving while Nim insists on staying behind to try another way to save the island by proving that at least three endangered species live there. Nim soon finds Edmund, a young boy who has run away from home, hiding on her island as well as the pirate animal poachers that followed him. Before long, Nim and Edmund are in a battle of cunning and wits to rescue her beloved sea lion Selkie.
With Nim’s know-how and Edmund’s bravery, they are able to defeat the poachers and maybe even find the endangered animals that would allow Nim to stay on her beloved Island.

Inspired by the Nim’s Island series by author Wendy Orr, Return to Nim’s Island is sure to enchant audiences of all ages
 *All times are subject to change. The movie is 90 minutes and will end by 8:00pm.
