Do you have a little palaeontologist in the making, or a dinosaur expert with a birthday coming up? Dino Encounters brings the prehistoric world right to your own backyard with their interactive and educational dinosaur parties! Suitable for up to 20 children from 2 years of age, private packages are the perfect way to keep the kids entertained at parties and functions with an interactive educational show.
Dinosaur Parties at Home
Dino Encounters provides a one-of-a-kind service in southeast Queensland. They combine easy-to-digest education with bombastic entertainment, making their shows perfectly suitable for educational settings, as well as private and public functions. Learning about dinosaurs has never been so much fun!
Dino Encounters offers a range of packages to suit all budgets and venues:
Baby T-Rex Pack (recommended for ages 2+)
Dino Encounters’ smallest package is designed for your littlest learners who might be overwhelmed or intimidated by a full-sized show featuring a fully grown dinosaur.
Your dinosaur wrangler and their baby Tyrannosaur will keep the kids entertained with music, games, and stories; all the while teaching them about dinosaurs in a fun and easy-to-digest format.
Triassic Pack (recommended for ages 3+)
Best suited for events in parks and open spaces, the Triassic Pack is Dino Encounters’ entry-level experience for meeting a fully grown dinosaur! Your dinosaur wrangler will introduce the audience to Rusty, their 14-foot Deinonychus. This big beastie is intelligent, playful, and will thrill audiences of all ages. Hear her roar, and make sure to take lots of photos while she’s on the loose! Included in this package are games focused on dinosaur hunting behaviours to keep energy levels high and brains active.
Jurassic Pack (recommended for ages 3+)
The quintessential Dino Encounters experience! This package is jam-packed with activities for a memorable prehistoric party. Lasting 90 minutes, the Jurassic Pack begins with a 30-minute educational performance featuring two of their baby dinosaurs and their resident clever girl, Rusty the Deinonychus. Following that is a series of activities teaching the basics of geology and palaeontology: carnival games, fossil dig sites, and an exploding volcano! The baby dinosaurs and Rusty each make second appearances for more hands-on interaction and a mini dinosaur disco.
(Some assets included in the Jurassic Pack require access to electricity, and minimum space requirements apply. Please keep this in mind when choosing a venue for the Jurassic Pack.)
To cater to tighter budgets, Dino Encounters offers elements of larger packages to be added onto smaller shows. Choose from several experiences including fossil dig sites, carnival games, and baby dinosaurs to be delivered in addition to your package by their on-site performers.
Looking for something specific without booking everything but the kitchen sink? Dino Encounters has a range of props available for hire to enhance events, photo shoots, film projects, and displays at showgrounds. Please be sure to check prop availability before booking.
In addition to their entertainment packages, Dino Encounters also offers premade party bags. Their party bags (your choice of standard or premium) come stuffed with an array of Mesozoic goodies, delivered right on time for your party and with thank-you cards signed on behalf of your birthday child. Simply add the party bags to your booking and they’ll take care of the rest. Inside the bags are stamps, stickers, sliding puzzles, torches, erasers, and more! (With no lollies inside, you can rest assured that these won’t add to the sugar hit).
Special Events & Festivals
Dino Encounters’ staff are flexible performers who can perform for two kids as easily as two hundred. If you want to add some dinosaur goodness to an event like a school fete or street party, make an inquiry with the Dino Encounters office and they’ll do their best to suit your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I book Dino Encounters if I’m holding my party at a park? Of course! Dino Encounters recommend either the Baby T-Rex or Triassic Pack, but as long as they have access to electricity, they can even bring you the full-blown Jurassic Pack! Just ask them about details.
What if I change my mind about the package? No problem. Just give them at least 14 days’ notice for package alterations and Dino Encounters will do their best to accommodate a change of plans, if staff availability permits.
What if it rains on the day of my booking? Due to the sensitive nature of their equipment and the safety of their performers, Dino Encounters cannot proceed outdoors in heavy rain. They will be happy to work with you to reschedule your booking or change the package to suit your circumstances.
“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the party entertainment you put on for Harvey’s party. The guys had that bunch of 20 kids captivated from start to finish even with the 1.5hrs. I knew it would be good but it was truly incredible! Every parent commented how fabulous it was. And most importantly the birthday boy has said several times that is the best birthday party he’s ever been too! Thank you again.” – Annabelle
