Between 65 and 146 million years ago, during a time known as the Cretaceous period, the dominant fauna of eastern Australia included small-medium sized dinosaurs, primitive egg-laying mammals, turtles, marine reptiles and invertebrates.
But dinosaurs are not just part of the past – this week they were back and attracting a crowd in Centennial Park!
The Plesiosaurs are coming!
A lucky group of kids were on hand to enjoy an impromptu show, and the dinosaurs did not disappoint.
Now join the workshop at Carriageworks
