Universal Kingdom: Prehistoric Nights | Illuminate Adelaide 2024

Step back in time and into the Mesozoic Era to a land where puppets, lights and dinosaurs collide.

In a brand-new experience and a night not seen for millions of years, prepare to be electrified by the first in a trilogy exploring the prehistoric era. Brought to you by Adelaide Zoo and Illuminate Adelaide with presenting partner SA Power Networks, witness the evolution of the first creatures to crawl from the world’s vast oceans and some of the largest beasts to ever roam the planet.

Featuring state-of-the-art puppetry, new purpose-built installations, and a whole host of light and colour, renowned creative studios Erth and A Blanck Canvas join forces to craft this sprawling prehistoric world. Wander in a sea of floating bioluminescent jellyfish, see playful Plesiosaurs frolic with their hatchlings, and even come eye-to-eye with Australia’s own sharp-toothed Megaraptor, the fearsome Australovenator.

Highlighting Earth’s first extinction events and the importance of conservation preventing the next, visit this dinosaur dynasty with their intrepid keepers as your guide through an illuminating night of exploration and fun!
