What activities can you do during the NSW school holidays?

The stand out these school holidays is the Jurassic World pop-up in Sydney!

Labelled as “the closest you’ll ever come to living dinosaurs,” where explorers will board the ferry to Isla Nublar just like in the Jurassic World movie.

Step into the land before time and take a selfie with baby dinos or extract dinosaur genetics in the Creation Lab. If you’re brave enough, get close to the Raptor paddock and even come face to face with the Tyrannosaurus Rex…

From November 2, SEN sessions will be available for special needs families. There will be breakpoints to de-stimulate, quiet rooms, exit points, and no closed doors so everyone can experience the exhibition. Available every Thursday at 4.30pm and 5pm until Thursday 29th.

Justin James, Co-CEO of SuperLuna explained: “Since we opened in September we’ve had a number of approaches from interested parents, carers and other guests that they would love to attend the exhibition but were concerned about overstimulation.”

“So we’re excited to announce these new sensory sessions and are looking forward to making it possible for even more fans to get the closest they’ll ever get to living dinosaurs,” he went on.
