• Dinosaurs in Centennial Park For the kids

    Dinosaurs in Centennial Park

 

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!

As part of the promotion for the upcoming Prehistoric Aquarium workshops at Carriageworks, the team from Erth brought a couple of Plesiosaurs to Centennial Park for the start of school holidays.

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

In prehistoric times, below the surface, swam some of the world’s most diverse marine reptiles. Following on from the internationally loved Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo, Erth have been scouring the seas to collect giant prehistoric underwater creatures.

Take a deep breath and meet these aquatic creatures in person. For kids 5 years +.
