The Dinosaur Garden

In early 2020, we developed a new Dinosaur Garden.

Working with local Canberra landscapers Rocky and his team at Dan and Dan Landscaping, we have extended our garden to now cover an area of nearly 1500 square metres.

Some of our old favourites like our raptors, triceratops, and StanCanberra’s larger-than-life Big Dinosaurare still here. Then we have introduced a range of new friends including theropods, diprotodons, and some interactive dinos for younger kids to play on.

Look out for some great photo opportunities as you walk through the jaws of a giant dino head, sit in our Jeep, wander through raptor alley, or pose behind our carnotaurus heads.

Younger kids may play on the large sleeping ankylosaur, or climb on a sleeping muttaburrasaurus and the lying down theropod. Please note that all climbing should be carried out under parental supervision and is at your own risk. No other dinosaurs should be climbed on.

Entry to the dinosaur garden is now part of our paid admission. Tickets may be purchased in advance through the ‘Book Activities’ button on our website, or at the museum’s reception desk.
