Dinosaurs at Sydenham Botanic Park

We invite you to step back in time 70 million years this summer to an age when dinosaurs roamed New Zealand!

Now in it’s second year, DinoFest is back with more dinosaurs, more roaring, and more chomping!

Meet Rexy and Roxy our two-legged meat-eating dinosaurs, baby dinosaurs, and ‘Big Herb’ our plant eating titanosaur…

Learn more about the prehistoric ferns, cycads and conifer trees whose descendants still grow in the gardens today!

The event is set in Sydenham Botanic Park, amongst the beautiful pines and cycads which grew in New Zealand millions of year’s ago.

Tickets include a Dino Dig, ‘Feel a Fossil,’ kids dinosaur tattoos, sieving for fossil sharks teeth, (genuine 55 million years old – you get to keep one), art activities, and a Jurassic Dinosaur Trail (meet the dinosaur discovered in New Zealand).

Free entry for children under 2 on the day of DinoFest.

This event is brought to you by Eventosaurus and Tauranga City Council.
