Dino Eggsploration!

Dino eggsploration

Botany Bay has gone prehistoric this Easter!


Due to the wet weather conditions today and electronics in our dinosaur, it is looking unlikely that Rex the T-Rex is able to make an outdoor appearance. He requires a wide-open space to perform in and due to the size of Rex and the sheer volume of people we have seen the last 3 days this is not feasible inside the mill for safety reasons.

In view of this, there will be additional meet and greet sessions laid on during the day of the baby dinosaurs in our 4th floor function room. The baby dinosaurs may also be making surprise visits around the mill!

Please note, the baby dinosaur sessions will be operated on a meet and greet basis for photo opportunities and we can only accommodate a set number of people during each session.

All other activities as published will still go ahead.


11am – Meet the baby dinosaurs, 4th floor Function Room
12pm – Meet the baby dinosaurs, 4th floor Function Room

2pm – Meet the baby dinosaurs, 4th floor Function Room
3pm – Meet the baby dinosaurs, 4th floor Function Room
