Current Show: Mutty and the Great Dinosaur Stampede puppet show

Join Mutty the Muttaburrasaur for a dinosaur adventure set in the Australian Outback. Together you’ll meet many different Australian dinosaurs, including some friendly herbivories and not so friendly carnivores. Take part in a chase, a stampede and a whole lot of dinosaur fun. Will Mutty and their new friends escape the hungry Australovenator? Come find out!

Children will learn and grow with this interactive puppet show and role-playing experience. It’s fun for the whole family, especially any junior palaeontologists.
