Dinosaurs at Taronga Zoo

With activities such as 'Follow the Dinosaur Trail', the kids are able to get up close to life-like dinosaurs including the Styracosaurus and the cutest babies. At the Dinosaur Lawns there's a menacing looking T-Rex, an opportunity to navigate the Stegosaurus Robot and a Fossil Pit Dig for the kids to learn more about palaeontology. The kids loved having a go with the brushes to brush away the sand and discovering a dinosaur skeleton.

Be an archaeologist for a moment

Be prepared for the Dino Shop which is nearby with a range of prehistoric toys, gifts and souvenirs. This is the only place to purchase dinosaur related items just to let you know so you don't promise the kids the world when you have wandered back to the entrance to the main shop.
