Dinosaurs are coming back to life
If you thought dinosaurs were extinct - then guess again! Dinosaurs are making their way to the three Victoria Zoos from 6th of April to 14th of July. There is even a chance to win a huge trip to California!
At Melbourne Zoo, you will find the 'Dino Park', which will allow you to get up and personal to dinosaur puppets in the famous Carousel Park. There will also be a Dino Egg Hunt Trail for Zoo members at Melbourne Zoo from Friday 19th to Monday 22nd of April. Members will be able to collect an egg hunt map from the entrance and follow the map and clues to find dinosaur and bird eggs across the zoo. Once you've found all the clues, you can drop your map back into the front entry and go into a prize draw for a dinosaur prize. Also at Melbourne Zoo, a special 'Zoovie Night' will be on Saturday the 6th of April, showing family favourite movie The Good Dinosaur. Bookings for the movie can be made online.
Over at Werribee Open Range Zoo, the 'Zoorassic' park will arrive among the animals. Moving dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurs Rex and Stegosaurus will be roaming around. There is a special 'Zoorasic' member preview at this zoo on Friday the 5th of April, giving members the chance to experience the dinosaurs before anyone else. On weekends and school holidays, children will also get the chance to be a Dino Explorer. Children 5 and above can join a ranger and come face to face with dinosaurs, collect their dino explorer badge and a fun fossil digging activity!
At Healesville Sanctuary, 'Mega Beasts' have arrived! Ten huge and moving dinosaurs will be making their way through the zoo! There is also a Mega Keeper Adventure available for children aged 6-12 on school holidays and weekends. Children will receive a Mega Keeper ID lanyard and join an expert Mega Keeper, who will help you achieve the three tasks. You will then head out on a MegaBeast trail, meet the ferocious animals and collect a personalised photo of your special day.
You can also win the ultimate California holiday by visiting all three zoos between 5th of April and 14th of July. Make sure to scan your member card at each zoo and you will be in the running!
This is a huge event across three zoos in Victoria, great for members and fans of dinosaurs!
