    Spring School Holidays in Perth

    Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous

    Prepare for a close encounter with the most extraordinary creatures to ever walk the earth. Featuring more than 23 moving, life-size animatronic models of the Cretaceous period (145-66 million years ago), Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous is like nothing you've ever experienced!

    The scale and authenticity of these magnificent beasts will blow you away, as they move and breathe with thrilling lifelike accuracy. Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous has all your favourites from the Cretaceous era, crafted to scientifically exact specifications, moving and interacting with each other.

    With more dinosaurs than ever before, including two monstrous Tyrannosaurus rex, the exhibition is an all-ages experience to remember. Step inside a meteorite crater and roam with dinosaurs using cutting edge augmented reality. Dedicated kids’ activities encourage discovery, with a centrally-located play zone, digital dinosaur track experience and more.

    Adults can enjoy the Friday night Cretaceous Pop-Up Bar for 18+, inside the exhibition on 27 October, 24 November, 15 December and 19 January. Book now.

    Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous invites you to immerse yourself in a world ruled by dinosaurs at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from 20 September - 28 January 2017.
