Are you ready for an adventure?
145-66 million years ago, during the time that geologists call the Cretaceous period, the Earth was a very different place to the one we inhabit today. If we could travel back in time, we would barely recognise Cretaceous Australia with its volcanoes, shallow inland seas and great rift valleys stretching across vast distances.
Using paleontological research this exhibition showcases life-size, moving animatronic dinosaurs, including Muttaburrasaurus and Australovenator. Get a taste of the environment in which these creatures lived, and how evidence of them and their lives became preserved as fossils.
You can also explore the evolution of the Earth during that time. Learn how a meteor triggered a mass extinction, how fossils are made and if birds are really dinosaurs.
With your cameras at the ready, prepare to enter a world ruled by dinosaurs!

Saturday 30 October 2021 - Sunday 27 February 2022
*This exhibition is recommended for children over the age of five.
