Did you hear a roar?
Dinosaur Adventures is an exhibition set to captivate the young and old alike.



Opening at Caulfield Racecourse on 21 June until 20 July, 2014, this interactive exhibition recreates a prehistoric world, inhabited by life-size moving dinosaurs.

The whole family will be amazed and thrilled as the greatest creatures ever to walk the earth return before their eyes and come alive.



Come along and marvel at the story of how the dinosaurs dominated life on earth for 200 million years.

Then watch them move and hear the roar! From the ripple of their skin to the glint in their eye, you will think that the dinosaurs really are back!



Complementing the exhibition is a range of educational activities for children. One such highlight is the 'Paleontologist for the Day' program, which sees children don an expert digger outfit, and given tools to chip away at their very own fossil.

Other activities children can partake in include the informative fossil displays, the dinosaur sand pit, the dinosaur egg photo area, dinosaur themed rides and a jumping castle, the dinosaur camp story-telling and a chance to meet 'Fred & Barney' from The Flintstones!



Pegged as a must-see these school holidays, Dinosaur Adventures is set to bring all the wonder and excitement of the prehistoric world of dinosaurs back.

We went tonight. Great for little kids as they would get more of a kick out of seeing the dinosaurs and interacting with the activities. I have a 7 and nine year old so maybe this place was a bit young for them. Jumping castles, story telling and dinosaur digging. Free ice creams and dinosaur puzzles. Other stuff you can buy there too. Smaller venue than I thought can do it easily in 1 hour.

Disappointing. It has been advertised as being suitable for children 3-17 years old, however I would say only children under the age of 7. What a lot of money to spend on an exhibition of a few dinasaurs, some interactive activities that you spent 10-15 minutes lining up for, and overcrowded. Not sure why it is necessary to have carnival stalls and showbags enticing children on entrance, or having to 'top up' an exhibition with bouncy castles.

What an absolute over priced over commercialised event. Honestly 12 or so decent dinosaur models and that's it. What a waste of time and money. Too any people at the expense of safety and $ are their driver.

Total rip off. Over priced for what you got. Badly organised, and not much to interact with. Ridiculous in this day and age not to be able to pay with a credit card, cash only. Could have looked around it in 20 minutes, but l strung it out to try and get some value for money.. Must say that didn't work.
