Photo Friday: Dinosaurs Alive!

A few years ago the Dinosaurs Alive show came to Adelaide. At the time we couldn’t attend. But now they’re back! This time they’re roaming the Adelaide zoo. And this time, we got to see them. (And parking was free. Bonus!)


Dinosaurs Alive was originally planned to end this Sunday but their stay has been extended. You can now see the zoo’s newest but most ancient residents until 5th February, due to popular demand. For more information, check out the Adelaide Zoo’s website.

Photo Friday: Curious Beasts and Where I Found Them

Inspired by the recent film, we went in search of amazing beasts at the South Australian Museum’s recent exhibition: Curious Beasts. The exhibit bookends British Museum Animal prints – woodcuts and engravings from the 1400s through to the 1800s – neatly with specimen exhibits from the SA Museum. Art meets science – perfect!


And more amazing beasts lie within the museum walls.


From the sea…


From indigenous art… and treasures formed in our past (the largest opalised fossil)


and joined us for lunch.

Curious Beasts exhibition ends the first week of February.
