There’s something unusual living in the Gardens this winter…
Australia has been home to some of the world's most unique megafauna and dinosaurs. Our largest carnivorous dinosaur, Lightning Claw, used its hook-like claws to ensnare its prey. Thunder Birds, towering over two-metres tall, made their nests among the trees.
This multi-sensory, puppetry-based experience is filled with creations inspired by Erth’s work with leading scientists and museums. Pack a picnic and join Erth, creators of incredible puppetry and performance for families, to experience some of these large, ancient creatures up close!
