They’re big. They’re fierce. They’re amazing – it’s the first-ever exhibition of more than 120 prehistoric and dinosaur scale casts, fossils and resin replicas from local collector and palaeontologist, Michael Dawson, at SEEN@Swansea, sponsored by Lake Macquarie City Council.

Council’s Manager Cultural Services, Jacqui Hemsley said this curated exhibition features original specimens and casts of dinosaur skeletons, showing the life of dinosaurs over millions of years.

“This exhibition is a unique opportunity to walk amongst huge dinosaur skeletons and examine intricate fossils that track dinosaur evolution from the Triassic to Cretaceous time periods. A journey of 175 million years,” Ms Hemsley said.

“The true scale of the artefacts create a genuine sense of life in the prehistoric world.”

“We are inviting our whole community to come along and enjoy this awe-inspiring exhibition, it’s the perfect activity for the summer school holidays.

“There’s even a life-size Tyrannosaurus Rex to really impress the kids!”

The Dinosaurs to Dodos exhibition opens at 10am Saturday 25 November at SEEN@Swansea, located on the first floor mezzanine at The Swansea Centre, Pacific Highway, Swansea.

Entry is just a gold coin donation and the exhibit is open 10am-3pm daily. The exhibition ends Saturday 10 February 2018. For more information visit lakemac.com.au/community/arts-heritage-and-culture/seen-swansea.
