Ever wanted to meet a dinosaur? Dino Zoo Safari is the closest you can get to the real thing – minus the danger of being eaten! You can meet the world’s most scientifically accurate, life-sized, digital dinosaurs, dig for fossils, and learn about dinosaur evolution and mass extinction. The Cube will roar with dinosaur-themed family fun for a special World Science Festival Brisbane presentation. Keep young hands and minds occupied with dinosaur themed activities!

Our life-sized dinosaurs are the most scientifically accurate portrayals of these creatures in the world. And, thanks to artificial intelligence, our dinosaurs will even behave like the real thing, based on a set of behavioural parameters for each species. You can make friends with the herbivores, while keeping a wary eye on the predators.

The Cube team has partnered with Queensland Museum’s renowned palaeontologist, Dr Scott Hocknull, to recreate these hyper-realistic, prehistoric reptiles and their environment, all backed by the latest research. Dino Zoo also has digital activities, including an archaeological dig simulator and an interactive Earth timeline.

Rules of the Zoo

  1. A life-sized dinosaur isn’t cuddly or friendly. While the experience can be a lot of fun, some children might need the comfort of a brave adult ranger to ensure a positive experience. Children under 12 must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times.
  2. Our dinosaurs are on a strictly scientific paleo diet. Please don’t feed them human food.
  3. Be careful when the dinosaurs are in the front paddock—some of them like to prey on small animals.
  4. Photography is encouraged. #dinozooqut

Have fun exploring and learning!
