Dinosaurs Down Under

Professor Flint (aka Michael Mills)

Dinosaurs Down Under is a science based, musical adventure, that explores the story of prehistoric Australia. Starring award winning singing palaeontologist Professor Flint, it will take you on a delightful journey to discover the dinosaurs, and other prehistoric creatures, that once walked on this ancient land!

For we who dwell in Australia, Dinosaurs Down Under is an important part of learning about the story of who we are. And while the mighty T.rex is a most remarkable, and the most famous dinosaur on the planet, here in Australia, we have our own unique story to tell. From the mighty flesh-eating Australovenator, to remarkable long-necks like Savannasaurus and Rhoetosaurus, the story of prehistoric Australia is story to unique to us, and a story that every Australian should know about.

Dinosaurs Down Under is a show for families with young people, and will leave your toes tapping, your dino-feet stomping, and your voices roaring for more.
