Good news, Australians!  Harry Potter: The Exhibition’s next stop will be your town of Sydney.

From a press release this morning:

Harry Potter fans will soon get the chance to step inside the famous wizard’s magical world with Harry Potter: The Exhibition, opening at the Powerhouse Museum on 19 November 2011.

Tickets for this amazing exhibition are on sale from Tuesday 19 July, offering visitors an up-close and personal look at the artistry and craftsmanship that went into creating the iconic props and costumes that have appeared throughout the Harry Potter film series.

Hundreds of authentic film artefacts will be displayed in settings inspired by locations from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, including the Gryffindor common room, Hagrid’s hut, the Great Hall and many more. New original props and costumes from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 and the highly anticipated finale, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, will also be on exhibit.
