Tickets available from Ticketek 

Dare to adventure to the bottom of the sea.
Deep below the surface, submerged below time, swam some of the world’s most amazing prehistoric marine reptiles. Following the internationally-loved and applauded show Erth's Dinosaur Zoo™, the team at Erth has spent years scouring the seven seas, collecting playful prehistoric creatures of the deep in their giant aquarium. For the very first time, you’re invited to dive in and meet these aquatic critters in person.
What does a Plesiosaur’s skin feel like? How big are a Kronosaurus’ teeth? And do Kimberella even wear shoes? Our skilled handlers will answer these questions and more in the once-in-a-lifetime interactive theatre experience at Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium.
Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium invites children to plunge into the action; performers will ask a few young divers to join them on their quest to the bottom of the ocean, to ‘swim’ with an amazing array of aquatic creatures from bygone eras.
