Jurassic swamp tasmania zoo

Tasmania Zoo’s ‘Jurassic Swamp’ is home to over 40 life-size dinosaurs, which can be seen up close in an amazing ‘super-sized’ experience, perfect for all ages. Release your inner palaeontologist and step back in time to the Jurassic Era. You’ll come face to face with a triceratops, stegosaurus, brachiosaurus, apatosaurus (brontosaurus), dimetrodon, allosaurus, velociraptor, the tiny iguanodon and the mighty tyrannosaurus rex!

The jurassic swamp walk provides educational signs promoting conservation messages and the similarities between the extinction of the dinosaurs and other species of recent times, such as the Tasmanian tiger, and the plight of our current-day threatened species.

Jurassic Swamp is open during Tasmania Zoo’s business hours, at no additional cost after admission fee.
