The dinosaur appeals to the imagination of kids of all ages but the actual dinosaur itself is more suitable for toddlers and above. It can only be accessed by a rope ladder or the footholds embedded in the dinosaur’s legs and as such, 2 year old Baby 2.0 can't get up without assistance.

Once inside the belly of the dinosaur you can climb up to the head and roar like a dinosaur using the megaphone, or take a slippery slide out through the dinosaur’s tail!

The dinosaur is next to Yarraville Community Garden and is surrounded by parkland, so it’s a great place for a picnic and a play.
