Some very special, prehistoric visitors have made their way to Fremantle! If you are headed to Fremantle for a family day out, be sure to look out for a number of incredibly real dinosaurs dotted around the port city from now until 2 February 2020.

Dinosaurs Come Alive is a fantastic opportunity to explore the city with kids. My children and I had headed to Fremantle to visit the Maritime Museum and decided to have a look for the dinosaurs too. We downloaded a free trail map and off to Fremantle we went.

You can also pick up a trail map from a number of places around Fremantle, such as:
Fremantle Visitor Centre
Fremantle Library
Fremantle Markets
Fishing Boat Harbour
Fremantle Prison
Clancy’s Fish Pub Fremantle



There are also some fantastic free activities going on around Fremantle at Kidogo Arthouse, Toyworld and WA Shipwrecks Museum. You can find more details here.

You will find the dinosaurs located at some of Fremantle’s most popular attractions, including Esplanade Park, WA Shipwrecks Museum, Fremantle Prison, Fremantle Markets and Fishing Boat Harbour, plus download some further information here.

After our trip to the Maritime Museum, followed by lunch and a play at Esplanade Park, the little ones were a bit less enthused about trekking around looking for dinosaurs, so we only found 2 before it was well and truly time for me to get my children home.



But the two that we did find were incredibly impressive! They were so realistic (not that I’ve seen a real dinosaur, onviously….) especially the animatronic dinosaur, which moves and roars and generally scares the little kids.

In total there are two dinosaurs to find: eight animatronic and two static dinosaurs, including Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, Baronyx and Pteranodon. There is lots to learn about each species, plus a question and answer sheet you can download here.
