For anyone with children or grandchildren, or those of us with an enjoyment of science fiction aimed at a younger audience, the following events are happening in Canberra through the current school holidays.
Jurassic World Exhibit – model dinosaurs and related items from the Jurassic World movies. This exhibition is on now and closes Wednesday 17th October, in the Centre Court at South Point Tuggeranong (formerly Tuggeranong Hyperdome). There are also children’s craft events at 11am to 2pm each day up to Friday 12th October – which may be a good time each day to avoid the exhibit if you’re child-free.
