Adelaide your Jurassic prayers have been answered!
One of our favourite Adelaide family events is back, this time in a new location at Edwards Park off Anzac Highway. This really is a high quality production, which is worth every penny of the entry fee, with some absolutely phenomenal animatronic creations to stimulate the imaginations of your little ones (just quietly it is great for adults too). We just love the interactive learning stations as well, with everything from Dino drawings to fossil hunting (a real highlight this…complete with your very own archaeologist white coat!) to fossil displays, you will spend every minute of your 2 hour session exploring all the activities on offer.
Some quick tips from our visit to Jurassic Creatures this year;
1. Very pram friendly – They have moved to the old netball courts so you have nice, sturdy bitumen across the whole event so even in the wet winter weather, your pram is sorted.
2. Toilets – Located in the council toilet block just outside the main entry
3. Parking – $14 parking at the event, or if you want you can park at the top of Goodwood Road (after 10am) for free. A very short walk and you have saved yourself some cash.
4. Pack a lunch – There are food stalls, but not a huge amount of food on offer. We grabbed some nuggets and chips plus a drink or two, but the rolls we packed hit the spot.
5. Pack a brolly – The dino exhibit is all outdoors, which is fabulous but does leave you a little exposed in the rain. Thankfully there is a huge big top tent for all the bouncing castles and other activities.
6. Entry covers ‘most’ of the activities – Be prepared that your little crew may pester for the showbags and other carnival games which are not included in the entry price.
7. Bouncing castles – Don’t forget to take your shoes off! Due to the covid restrictions on numbers, the crowds are a fantastic size….not too big and not too small. So with several jumping castles our crew jumped on and off at their leisure without lining up.
There really is so much more to this event too, which we can’t speak more highly about. The rave reviews are absolutely justified and if you can find the time to get along during this July Adelaide school holidays, you will not be disappointed.
