If your dinosaur-loving grand kids want to get up close and personal with a t-rex without any fear of becoming lunch, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
New virtual installation Hologram Dinosaurs opened at the Australian Museum on September 2 as part of its annual Dinosaur Festival.
Upon entering the exhibition, visitors have a chance to explore four pre-historic environments, encountering and interacting with various herds of dinosaurs in their natural habitat - some of them standing 10 metres tall and spanning up to 20 metres in length.
They also get to take to the ancient seas and skies, diving with ancient marine reptiles and soaring with the pterosaurs.
The museum's head of exhibitions Fran Dorey said the installation offers a perfect blend of entertainment and education.
"Through this breathtaking digital technology our visitors will experience the trepidation and excitement of meeting long-extinct animals as well as stand in the shadows of the largest creatures to have ever walked the earth," she said.
The installation was created by AXIOM Holographics. The company's chief executive Bruce Dell said the installation offers a sensory feast for the eyes and ears.
"We are thrilled to work with the... nation's first museum, to showcase these prehistoric creatures in a way their visitors would never before have experienced," he said.
Running from September 2-October 15, the museum's dinosaur festival will feature a bumper line-up of dinosaur themed events.
Other highlights will include a tyrannosaurus autopsy, adventure into the prehistoric world of Australian dinosaurs and even an up close and gross, but very funny insight into the origin of the faeces.
