Last night I drove straight from work, picked up Toddler D and headed excitedly to Caulfield Racecourse for a dinosaur adventure. Greeted with a grand tent and loud roars we entered this year’s must-see kids holiday event with big smiles on our faces; and when we got inside there were smiles and wide-eyed kids and parents exploring the well laid-out dinosaur land. After a jam-packed week at work, it was so nice to be able to spend some quality time with Daniel seeing his eyes light up with both amazement and a little fear!

 We were kept occupied for hours with:
– 3D dinosaur making
– sandpit digging
– fossil digging
– jumping castles
– games and displays
and more IMG_4353IMG_4354IMG_4362

As we rushed straight from work to see the dinosaurs, we were happy to see food and drinks for sale, ATM’s readily available and easy access to clean bathrooms. Staff were friendly and we also hung out with the Flinstones! 🙂 With all this going on the true stars of the night were the giant, moving and roaring dinosaurs – with facts about each one accompanying the displays the event was not only great fun, but also educational. Make sure you get in and book your ticketshere before all the sessions sell out!

Dinosaur story time proved popular with the older kids and they were seated quietly listening to the ranger absorbing interesting stories and facts about these prehistoric giants. There were also guided tours of the arena and couple with effective lighting, wind and sounds all made for a fabulous Friday night out with our little one.

IMG_4375Daniel was happy to see Fred and Barney Flinstone – maybe because they didn’t have as big, sharp teeth as all the other characters he’d been seeing all night!
