Erth's Prehistoric Aquarium is getting ready to take Bunbury families and children to the bottom of the ocean and to the beginning of time, to meet amazing prehistoric marine reptiles.
A real adventure, enriched by a few lucky children from the audience who are immersed in the action, swimming with the creatures in the tank, will be at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre on Thursday, August 24.
Following the incredibly successful sell-out Bunbury season of Erth's Dinosaur ZooTM, the team at Erth have spent years scouring the seven seas, collecting playful prehistoric creatures of the deep in their giant aquarium.
Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium director Scott Wright said creating this project is the greatest adventure the team have been on.
“The ocean is where all life began, it's stories are rich and many unknown,” he said.
“More is known about the surface of the moon than the bottom of the ocean. What kind of creatures have lived there and maybe even still live their now?”
Aiming to connect young audiences to the real science of palaeontology, the prehistoric creatures are unmistakably ‘alive’ in this fun, educational and unique performance that will delight all audiences from ages five and up.
If you’ve ever wondered what a Plesiosurus’ skin feels like or how big a Kronosaurus’ teeth are or if Kimberella’s even wear shoes, the skilled Erth handlers will be able to shed some light on all of your conundrums.
BREC general manager Sharon Custers said it was an obvious choice to bring an Erth tour back to Bunbury.
“We’re thrilled to be hosting Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium. We know Bunbury loved them last time and know that the Prehistoric Aquarium will be just as exciting,” she said.
Deep below the surface, submerged below time, swam some of the world’s most amazing prehistoric marine reptiles. For the very first time, Bunbury is invited to dive in and experience an amazing array of aquatic creatures from bygone eras, connecting young audiences to the real science of palaeontology.
Children can watch wide-eyed from a safe distance or dare to get right up close to these prehistoric creatures.
Playing for one show only, Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium will take over BREC on Thursday, August 24 at 6.30pm. Tickets are now on sale from bunburyentertainment.com.
