For 2023's World Science Festival Brisbane, Erth is winding the clock back 65 million years with a series of dinosaur-heavy picnics at South Bank. Popping up at the Piazza, Erth's Prehistoric Picnic will bring a series of huge dinosaur puppets and inflatables to the riverside precinct for a show filled with dino wonder.

These dinosaur recreations will stretch their legs and wander their way around the picnics to the delight of adults and children alike. Included in the roster of millennium-old creatures is the newest edition to Erth's repertoire: a set of three-metre tall thunderbirds that will be strutting their stuff across the prehistoric events.

Entry costs $30 for adults and doesn't come with a picnic included, so it's recommended you break out the blankets you bought during lockdown and pack an array of snacks for the whole group.

Sessions are running from Wednesday, March 22–Sunday, March 26, with 9.30am and 11.30am time slots available on weekdays and an extra 1.30pm event running on Saturday and Sunday.
