A world of prehistoric discovery awaits you and your children, in a little known spot tucked away at the rear of a popular Christmas tree farm on the Mornington Peninsula.

The festive season is quite obviously the busiest time of the year for Christmas tree farms across Melbourne. What then, do Christmas tree farms do when the yuletide season finishes? Well, there are trees to care for and nurture of course, but the clever folk at Somerville Christmas Tree Farm give you an all-year-round activity to visit with your dino loving kids; Dinosaur World.

Dinosaur World is a park filled with moving animatronic prehistoric critters, found scattered throughout the foliage.

In addition to strategically positioned dinosaurs to discover, your children will get to meet "Wilson" the walking dinosaur. He comes out to play at 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm each day. Then there is "Wilbur", a wee baby raptor who wants to meet your kids for photo opportunities!

Your budding paleontologists will have the opportunity to search for fossils in the 'dig and discover' sandpit, after which they will chisel away at their found blocks to see what's inside. They take home their fossil for a keepsake souvenir.

Speaking of keepsakes, Dinosaur World's shop is filled with all manner of prehistoric toys and gifts. A word of warning; it make be hard to leave without something.

Once you are done with your dinosaur discoveries, enjoy some rest and relaxation in the grounds of Dinosaur World's play park and picnic area. Bring a picnic lunch, or snags to cook on the BBQ, and let the kids play in the dino-themed playground.
