Professor Flint’s Dinosaurs Down Under is an interactive, musical-based performance that tells the story of prehistoric Australia. In exploring this story, students will discover Australian dinosaurs and other remarkable prehistoric creatures that once roamed the nation. From the first creatures of the Ediacara Biota to the plesiosaurs and ichthyosaurs that swam in the Eromanga Sea, to mega-sized giant-wombats, and giant, scissor-toothed possums, Australia is an ancient land full of extraordinary prehistoric stories! 

Students will also get the chance to meet with museum Senior Scientist and Curator of Palaeontology, Dr Espen Knutsen and chat about careers in science.
