Di­nosaurs roam the streets of city cen­tre

Guardian Express - - STREET WATCH -

THERE were some un­usual com­muters in Perth ear­lier this month.

The first ship­ment of di­nosaurs for a new ex­hi­bi­tion, in­clud­ing a Tyran­nosaurus rex, ar­rived in the CBD on Septem­ber 4 on flatbeds to make their way to their new home at the Perth Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre.

Com­ing from Queens­land,

fea­tures 23 mov­ing, life-size an­i­ma­tron­ics dino mod­els.

Four of them, in­clud­ing a 12m-long T-rex and an 11m Car­char­o­don­tosaurus, graced the streets of Perth. WA Mu­seum chief ex­ec­u­tive Alec Coles said dino fans were in for a treat.

“This giant ex­hi­bi­tion makes its re­turn from its record break­ing at­ten­dance at the Queens­land Mu­seum,” he said.

“We’ve added ex­tra di­nosaurs, new ac­tiv­i­ties and a range of new dig­i­tal in­ter­ac­tives.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion will open Septem­ber 20 and goes un­til Jan­uary 28.
