The latest travelling family show to come to Canberra

We were so excited to be invited to visit Canberra’s fun new attraction Jurassic Creatures – but then the Pandemic hit and Canberra went into Lockdown, cancelling opening night. Several months later as Canberra emerged from Lockdown we heard that Jurassic Creatures was moving on without even opening due to government number limitations, but happily all that changed and Jurassic Creatures is back on and playing now!

Jurassic Creatures is officially known as an animatronics exhibition – and it’s a fantastic spectacle to see. This great interactive walk-through display will have kids of all ages enchanted by its massive dinosaur models, and the adults staring in wonder!

The exhibit is made up of two large pavilions connected via an outdoor corridor, all filled with over thirty high-tech animated dinosaur models.

The prehistoric scene is a chaotic and delightful noisy one. You walk through and past lots of roaring and chittering dinosaurs “contained” within metal yards – it’s like you’re visiting a scaled down version of Jurassic Park – or a dinosaur zoo! Jurassic Park movie-style music plays through the speakers in the background.

All kinds of kid-friendly dinosaurs!

The T-Rex, Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Velociraptor and many other dinosaurs roar convincingly, waving their tails, lowering and raising their necks and opening their mouths as mysterious mists swirl around them. You can even “pet” some of them! The Ice Age is well represented with “Snow” falling down upon a massive Mammoth and even a Sabre Tooth Tiger!

From the smallest to the absolutely huge, every little dinosaur fan’s favourite is represented in this round up of epic prehistoric proportions! It’s learning by fun as each exhibit is labelled with it’s name, interesting facts and history – for example, did you know there was a Qantasaurus dinosaur, named after the airline who funded its excavation?!.

Much more than dinosaur animatronics

Dinosaur arts and crafts galore!

Scattered arts and craft stations can be found along the walk, and there’s a fun excavation area especially for kids to become a Paleontologist and dig out their own fossil dinosaur model from a powder egg using a mini hammer and chisel.
