How fascinating is it that creatures the size of buildings roamed the earth many millions of years ago? To this day, dinosaurs continue to fascinate both the young and old alike and now as part of the Sydney Festival, Erth’s Prehistoric Picnic will bring us up close to these semi-mythical creatures. Roaming the surrounds of Parramatta Park and the Royal Botanic Garden for the entire month of January, the picnic adventure comes courtesy of Erth — Sydney’s popular dino-recreationists.

Erth’s Prehistoric Picnic

On tomorrow at Parramatta Park, the show lasts about 60 minutes at 9am and 11am before moving to the Royal Botanic Garden from January 15-30. Multiple sessions are on offer at 9am and 11am, and a few evening sessions are available as well at 6pm at the Botanic Gardens.

At just $30 per ticket, the event promises a fun time for the whole family. Just pack a picnic, carry your rug and get ready to witness these majestic creatures up close. This time round, the display has a brand new member in the form of the towering, three-metre-tall Thunderbird.

This is one of many exciting events taking over the city thanks to the Sydney Festival, giving us all the incentive we need to head out and take advantage of the summer. Also on display is a 2.7 tonne melting ice block hoisted over the Opera House and a massive musical production inspired by the music of Bob Dylan.

Check out all the Sydney Festival events happening around the city.
