Werribee Open Range Zoo

Dino Files (18+ event)

The dinosaurs new to Werribee Open Range Zoo aren't just for the kids! Enjoy Dino Files – a special Sunday series of dinosaur themed events exclusive for over 18s. 

For three nights only in April and May, the zoo will open its gates after-hours for Dino Files - an intimate opportunity for Jurassic-lovers to eat, drink, walk with the dinosaurs and partake in some nerdy nostalgia with dino pop culture trivia, a comedy science debate, and a live action comedy show! 


Sci Fight Debate – Sunday 28 April

Sci Fight Science Comedy Debate brings together scientists and comedians to debate important issues in a rigorously silly manner. Tonight’s topic: We should bring back the dinosaurs.

Dinosaur Trivia – Sunday 5 May

Bring a team (4–6 people) and get ready to pit your wits against other Dinosaur lovers with questions covering pop culture, fact, fiction, and everything in between. Plus, there'll be some awesome prizes to be won! 

Dungeon Crawl – Sunday 19 May

Live action Dungeons and ... Dinosaurs? Melbourne’s hit improvised comedy show, Dungeon Crawl, is set to entertain! Join Dungeon Masters Ben McKenzie and Richard McKenzie as they take a party of comedians and improvisers on a D&D-inspired adventure where the audience influences the action, but success still hinges on the roll of the dice.
