Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous


Do you dare roam with dinosaurs? Do you know your Australovenator from your Amargasaurus, your Spinosaurus from your Styracosaurus?

Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous gives you a chance to experience life on earth 145 million years ago.

Featuring a herd of animated, life-size dinosaur models, including the fearsome T-Rex, and Queensland’s very own Muttaburrasaurus, Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous will transport you back millions of years to when dinosaurs ruled the earth.

Get up close with these titans of the Cretaceous and see first-hand how they moved, roared, gnashed and bellowed. 

Each dinosaur has been made to scientific specifications to capture the real look, feel, sound and movement of these magnificent creatures, giving you a close up look at some of the most extraordinary creatures to have ever walked the earth. Find out more about the dinosaurs in the exhibition.

We encourage photography inside the exhibition space, share your visit by tagging #dinodisco and #mtqdino.

Download the Dinosaur Discovery App via iTunes or Google Play before your visit and bring your own herd of dinosaurs to life.
