Erth’s widely acclaimed show, Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo™, takes audiences into a new dimension of theatre. Meet awesome prehistoric creatures, from cute baby dinos to some of the largest carnivores and herbivores that have ever walked the planet! Erth’s dinosaurs are unmistakably ‘alive’ and mostly friendly in this fun, educational and unique performance that will delight all audiences from ages 5 years and up.
Get up close and personal with an amazing array of creatures from bygone eras, connecting young audiences to the real science of palaeontology. Meet our most recent zoo addition, a carnivorous theropod known as the Australovenator, discovered in QLD and is the most complete meat-eating skeleton yet found in Australia. Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo™ includes a menagerie of insects and dinosaurs that once roamed free around the world and are now in daily residence.
Learn how to feed and interact with Erth’s dinosaurs in a once in a lifetime interactive experience. Children can watch wide-eyed from a safe distance or dare to get right up close to these prehistoric creatures.
