Dinosaurs roam the streets of city centre
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.
