Re-Opening Soon 

Grab a vest, some excavating tools and start digging. What will you uncover? Ancient treasures? Dinosaur fossils?

We’ve marked out two grids where we think you might make some incredible discoveries.

You could find yourself unearthing artefacts of the Neolithic period some 11,000 years ago as an archaeologist, or unveiling dinosaur bones from the Jurassic period as a palaeontologist.

We have artefacts from ancient Australia, Europe and Asia to discover at different times throughout the year.

Learn through play

Authentic experiences stimulate meaningful learning. The Dig will enhance your discovery and collaboration skills. It will also hone their self-regulation as they patiently dig for treasures.
