DinoFest Adelaide

DinoFest Adelaide

DinoFest Adelaide

This April we invite you to step back in time 66 million years, to an age when dinosaurs roamed the earth! Discover how Tyrannosaurs grew from small dog-sized dinosaurs, to become the world’s most fearsome predator…

Meet our life-size walking Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus and Carnotaurus two legged meat eaters, plus lots of cute baby dinosaurs. We also have a special VIP mystery guest dinosaur who’s making her first DinoFest appearance!

The event is set in the beautiful Adelaide Botanic Garden, so you can combine DinoFest with a picnic or walk around the stunning gardens. Learn more about the prehistoric ferns, cycads, and conifer trees whose descendants still grow in the gardens today.

Tickets include a 45 minute Dinosaur Encounter, kids activities, and a Dino Trail with 30+ dinosaurs including a life-size Tyrannosaurus rex.

We welcome everyone – the event is ideal for families with children under the age of eight years old.

Free entry for children under 2 on the day of DinoFest.

Brought to you in partnership with the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium and the Government of South Australia.
