Travel back in time to the Age of the Dinosaurs at the Wellington Botanic Garden this month. Get up close to a lifelike, but friendly, T-rex, velociraptor, dilophosaurus and some baby dinosaurs. Ideal for children aged four to 12 – the kids will also be able to look for fossils and learn about the plants and trees that lived millions of years ago. See eventfinda. co.nz for details.
