Jurassic Lounge

A few Tuesdays back I finally made it to Jurassic Lounge at the Australian Museum. Its been running for a while now and its a fun school night out, looking around the museum and having drinks, food and entertainment at the same time!

Anyway, it was pretty cool to just get out and do something different instead of working late all the time and here are some of the cool things I saw:

How about a giant stuffed wombat? Seriously this guy was huge. Like bigger than a bear. Insane.

This was a dude walking around in a dinosaur outfit and going right up into people's faces and 'scaring' them. Very life like and he just wandered around randomly. Putting the Jurassic into Jurassic Lounge, for sure!

There's an indigenous exhibition at the moment which included these beautifully mosaic tiled kangaroos in the famous "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil" type poses. This was actually far more beautiful in real life than my dodgy iPhone photo can show!

Then always a fan of the airbrush tattoos, I decided to line up to get me this one:

All in all a fun night out and if you're looking for something different to do on a school night, definitely check it out! There's cool food stands and drinks there for relatively decent prices considering its inside a museum.


  1. I've been wanting to go ever since I first heard about it a couple of years ago but haven't managed to. It seems to have exploded in popularity recently, a lot of people I know have been going (according to my FB newsfeed)! I'll definitely have to attend one night.

  2. Ohh how great! I'm going to go in the next two weeks before it finishes. I'm excited! I've seen some interesting activities from the Jurassic Lounge on Instagram!
