Dinosaurs have come alive at Watergardens

These Spring school holidays Watergardens Town Centre is playing host a brand new attraction; Dinosaur Adventures.

From Monday 23rd September to Sunday 13th October all are welcome to come and view this stunning exhibition which features life-sized animatronic dinosaurs from the Triassic period.

The exhibit is free to view and will be located at various locations around Watergardens Town Centre. There will also be a program of events and activities accompanying the exhibition;

  • Explore the Dinosaur Adventures exhibition with Ranger Dino.

    This guided tour will run from Monday 23rd September to Sunday 13th October and departs hourly between 10am and 4pm.

    It is free to participate in.

  • There will be a 'Fossil Digging' activity which will allow your little one can become a palaeontologist for the day. Each child will be provided with a fossil to chip away at - which they can take home.

    This activity will run from Monday 23rd September to Sunday 6th October at 11am to 2pm daily and is priced at $5 per session.

  • Another highlight is the 'Photographic Souvenir'; children will be invited to have their photo taken inside a life-sized dinosaur egg!

    This activity will run from Monday 23rd September to Sunday 13th October at 10am to 4pm daily and is priced at $12 per a photo.

There is also the Colouring-in Competition; simply download the colouring-sheet here. The winning entry will win a $100 prize pack and there are 20 runner up prizes. Entries can be submitted at the Customer Service Desk and the competition closes at 5pm on Sunday 13th October 2013. Full terms and conditions can be viewed here.
