Learn how Tyrannosaurs evolved from dog-sized dinosaurs to become the most fearsome predators on the planet!

We love dinosaurs!

A special interest in dinosaurs is recognised as a great way to get young children engaged in science. DinoFest is designed to be educational and bust some of the 'myths' created by Hollywood. We aim to inspire a true sense of awe in these beautiful, majestic animals who ruled the earth for tens of millions of years.

Founded in 2016, DinoFest is held in botanic gardens and parks, to transport our guests back to the Mesozoic era. Did you know that today's plants such as ferns, cycads, magnolias, and conifers were around when dinosaurs roamed the earth, and survived mass extinctions? Understanding the wondrous ancient natural world is a great first step for children to care about the environment.
