FUN… finds a way. Dinosaurs have returned to the Australian Reptile Park!

The mighty roar of Tyrannosaurus Rex and the snapping jaws of the Raptor will be on show at the Australian Reptile Park daily throughout the summer school holidays for Jurassic Zoo. The choreographed event series showcases the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods of geological time millions of years ago. These two carnivores will also feature in a Park walk with keepers guiding their way to avoid any lunch snacks of the human kind along their path. Kids, and the young at heart, also have the chance to be a paleontologist at our Dino Dig where you can learn how dinosaur experts find specimens and excavate your very own dinosaur!

Daily school holidays activities included in admission at the Australian Reptile Park will include:

  • Kids exploratory Dino Dig and fossil finding sand pit

  • Interactive dinosaur walks at 10.00am, 10.45am, 11.30am, 1.00pm, 12.15pm, 1.30pm & 2.30pm daily

  • American alligator feeding show of 40 alligators in the Park’s lagoon

  • See Elvis, Australia’s crankiest crocodile!

  • Daily animal walks throughout the Park, featuring Komodo dragons, dingoes & more!

  • Roving keepers for hands-on animal experiences with snakes, lizards, and cute & cuddly mammals
