Visitors to the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan can now find giant, extinct creatures lurking amongst the plants.

With the theme “Beasts & Botany of Ancient Australia”, the Augmented Reality app brings to life dinosaurs and megafauna matched to plants that would have once been part of the animal’s habitat or diet, such as the Wollemi Pine which is considered a “living fossil”.

Creatures included in the Jurassic Garden AR app include:

  • Muttaburrasaurus langdoni, Hadrosaur (duck-billed) dinosaur
  • Australovenator wintonensis, Australia’s answer to Velociraptor!
  • Procoptodon goliah, Australia’s largest and now extinct short-faced kangaroo
  • Diprotodon optatum, giant wombat-like marsupial
