Some life-sized prehistoric visitors have come to Perth
There is something a little bit prehistoric happening at Perth Zoo from Saturday, 15 September until early 2019. The dinosaurs are roaring back to life, right here in Perth.

Zoorassic Park will celebrate Perth Zoo turning the grand old age of 120. A number of life-sized dinosaurs are paying a visit, along with some very, very large fauna.

The dinosaurs are dotted around various parts of the zoo, either perched in the bushes or out on the lawns for all to see. Visitors can use the dinosaur discovery trail to record which creatures they have seen, as it won't be a case of 'seen one, seen them all'. The dinosaur world will evolve, so visitors are encouraged to stop by more than once to see how things have changed (this is where a Perth Zoo membership comes in handy.)

A prehistoric 'megafauna' will also make its debut at the Zoo later in the year. Will it be a giant kangaroo? A giant wombat? Or even a tortoise the size of a small car?

There will be Dino Keeper talks taking place every day at 11am for the duration of Zoorassic Park, starting at the Tyrannosaurus Rex. Here you will learn about the fascinating battles between the 'Tyrant Lizard King' and an even BIGGER dinosaur, the Spinosaurus. Who comes out as the winner?

If that just doesn't give you enough of a dinosaur fix, you can also take part in a special 'Eye to Eye' experience for a cost of $12. These experiences will take you into two lost worlds and will conclude with a live animal encounter!

At the 'Playleozone', children can get their hands dirty by digging for fossils! There will also be colouring sheets to complete, and the area will be open daily from 9:30am to 3pm.

The Perth Zoo is open every day of the week from 9am to 5pm, and the Zoorassic Park experience will be visiting from Saturday, 15 September to Sunday, 20 January 2019. Entry fees are $32 for adults and children aged 4 to 15 are $15.50. Concessions and seniors are $25. Children under 4 are free. You can also purchase a Perth Zoo membership, which is in my view, great value at $85 for an adult ticket. Three visits and you have your money's worth!

Perth Zoo is turning 120 years old and celebrating with some fascinating friends. Go along and marvel at these life-sized creatures and see how they once ruled the earth.
