Dinosaur Park at Grandview has just put the finishing touches on its prehistoric-themed park at Truganina. And it’s roarsome.

Legend has it that the park was inspired by the eruption of the Mount Atkinson volcano six million years ago, which covered the site and buried the bones of dinosaurs. Now, they’ve been unearthed and are ready for young explorers to discover.

Things to do at Dinosaur Park

The Dinosaur Park’s crowning glory is a climbable dinosaur head, but the kids are also flocking to the double-slide tower. There are dinosaur discoveries to be made around every corner, including hatching baby dinos and fossilised footprints.
