Erth's Prehistoric Picnic

When

Every day, 9am to 12pm Saturday 15 January to Sunday 30 January

Cost

Starting from: $30 + BF

It’s been a while – 65 million years, actually – since Sydney echoed to the calls and footsteps of dinosaurs. Now, thanks to Erth, Sydney’s world-famous dino-recreationists, it’s like they never left.   

There’s nothing like a good bit of lawn for a dinosaur to stretch its legs and do all the things a dinosaur’s gotta do. Made to spark feelings of wonder, Erth’s Prehistoric Picnic sends Parramatta Park and the Royal Botanic Gardens back to the wilderness of a distant era. 

A delight for the whole family, all you have to do is pack a picnic, practice your dino-voice and prepare to get very close to your favourite ancient creatures – including, for the first time, the newest members of Erth’s prehistoric menagerie, the towering, three-metre-tall Thunderbirds!

Daily except for Mondays 9am and 11am sessions. Runtime 60 minutes.
