Dino Zoo

Ever wanted to meet a dinosaur? Dino Zoo at The Cube is the closest you can get to the real thing – minus the danger of being eaten! Our life-sized dinosaurs are the most scientifically accurate portrayals of these creatures in the world. And, thanks to artificial intelligence, our dinosaurs will even behave like the real thing, based on a set of behavioural parameters for each species.

The Cube team has partnered with Queensland Museum's renowned paleontologist Dr Scott Hocknull to recreate these hyper-realistic, prehistoric reptiles and their environment, all backed by the latest research.

Dino Zoo includes digital activities, an archaeological dig simulator, an interactive Earth timeline and more. A series of related STEM workshops will also be offered for visiting high school students.

Please note: A life-sized dinosaur isn't cuddly or friendly. While the experience can be a lot of fun, some children might need the comfort of a brave adult ranger to ensure a positive experience. Children under 12 must be supervised at all times.
