Mini explorers, budding palaeontologists and little adventurers are wanted to help explore Queensgate’s new ‘Dino-gate’, a Jurassic world themed adventure, coming to the centre at the end of the month.

So once your young explorers are dressed in their dino themed fashions don’t miss the free fun summer event in the centre.

On Saturday July 29 and Sunday July 30, Central Square will reveal a hidden oasis set in a deep jungle and filled with hidden treasures, games, crafts and, of course, dinosaurs! Join the intrepid explorer, Terry Dactyl as she takes children on an adventure back in time when these humongous creatures roamed the planet.

The kids can dig for fossils, make their own dinosaur model and even see baby dinosaurs hatch!

There’s more… the main event! See Dexter the dinosaur come to life followed by his adorable babies as they take visitors on a prehistoric journey through time full of excitement, mystery and laughter.


The Jurassic set will completely transform Central Square into a scene from millions of years ago – perfect for parents looking for activity to do with the little ones during the summer. The team behind the entertainment are fantastic and full of energy plus they will tailor each activity to the child’s confidence and ability.
