Crikey! Robert Irwin walked with dinosaurs as Australia Zoo turned prehistoric to celebrate his 6th birthday today.
A special delivery of dinosaurs arrived at Australia Zoo for the party of Jurassic proportions, with guests able to experience up close encounters, where they can pat, feed and even walk alongside a dinosaur!
Robert was excited about this experience, and extended an invitation to all kids under 14 years to come along and help him celebrate his birthday for free*!
The party came to life with a special performance by the ICE AGE characters, Sid and Scrat, as they put on a show LIVE in the Crocoseum especially for Robert's birthday. Kids checked out the show, and then met Sid and Scrat themselves! The Crocoseum also featured an exclusive screening of ICE AGE 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs to celebrate its release on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow.
The crowd sung along to wish Robert a happy birthday as he took time out from the dinosaurs to cut his birthday cake - it was so gigantic, the crowd were treated to their very own piece!
The day also marked the arrival of Santa to Australia Zoo, who joined in the fun as he fed the crocs in the Crocoseum! Wooo-hoo!
There was STACKS of FREE fun to be had as Jurassic Joe entertained, and the HUGE croc slide was in action. Kids also had a go at the dinosaur-themed colouring competition and the rock-climbing wall, checked out the awesome ice sculpture, and had their hair cut by Robert's very own hairdresser!
To fit in all the jurassic fun, Australia Zoo opened at the early time of 8am, with free dino-muffins for the early birds.
