Dinosaur Adventures
Dinosaur Tragics of all ages can head to Eastland in July

Would-be palaeontologists will relish the opportunity to go all prehistoric this school holidays at Eastland Shopping Centre in Ringwood. From 1st - 28th July 'Dinosaur Adventures' will be on everyone's shopping list, only the exhibition experience is one item you'll get for nothing. That said, you can make a day of it with several additional user-pays activities available in the centre if you wish.

Do you feel like you're being....watched?

On its very first outing, Dinosaur Adventures is an exhibition focused on the Triassic period, and is suitable for the youngest of dinosaur tragics to the grooviest of grandparents. Its display will include life-sized moving dinosaurs in an animatronics show in the malls of the shopping centre.

Goodness Mr T-Rex, what big teeth you have!

A colouring competition, featuring dinosaurs of course, will keep your child's holiday hands busy. Colouring sheets can be collected from the Customer Service Desk, or you can download either the T-Rex and Triceratops colouring sheets. Entries close on 28th July. The winner will be treated to a selection of dinosaur books from Dymocks, and there will be twenty runners-up prizes awarded. Like they say, you've got to be in it to win it.
