We invite you to step back in time 70 million years this summer to an age when dinosaurs roamed New Zealand!
Meet Toru our life-size Triceratops, plus Rexy and Diablo our two-legged meat-eating dinosaurs, plus cute baby dinosaurs, and ‘Big Herb’ our plant-eating titanosaur… We also have a very special guest dinosaur who’s making her first appearance!
The event is set in the beautiful Auckland Botanic Gardens, 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 Dinosaur Encounter, kids activities, and a Dinosaur Trail with a full-size T-Rex.
We welcome everyone – the event is ideal for families with children under the age of eight years old.
