Dinosaurs facing extinction at Scenic World

Time is running out to see Scenic World’s prehistoric dinosaurs before they die out – again.

Dinosaur Valley has been a popular drawcard at the Katoomba tourism landmark this summer, with daily interactive events and after-hours activities, but the special exhibition closes on January 28.

Visitors can meet more than 20 animatronic dinosaurs up close in their natural environment and learn more about the fascinating creatures from friendly Dinosaur Rangers.

Ringo the Raptor and Barbara the baby triceratops make daily guest appearances during interactive “Meet and Roar” events and the kids will enjoy interacting with their favourite dinosaurs with a free Junior Ranger Trail Guide.

Scenic World’s events manager Alana Silk said Dinosaur Valley has been a big hit with families and couples looking to experience nature in new ways that leave a lasting impact this summer.

“Dinosaur Valley is the only dinosaur event of its kind held among ancient rainforest in the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains,” she said. “Where else can you ride the world’s steepest railway to meet dinosaurs up close in their natural environment?”

Dinosaurs have moved in for the summer, with a range of dino-themed retail specials and food and beverage options on the menu. The kids can also make the most of their adventure with a Junior Ranger Pack, complete with essentials such as binoculars, a water bottle, canvas bag and a Dinosaur Valley neck tie.

Guests will also learn about local flora and fauna, with more than 20 knowledgeable Dinosaur Rangers on hand to share fun facts about the world heritage-listed Blue Mountains.

Dinosaur Valley is free with entry to Scenic World and online earlybird specials apply for entry before 10am during the school holidays. Tickets are priced from $39 for adults, $21 for children under 14 years and $99 for a family pass including entry for two adults and up to five children.
