Dinosaurs under the big top in Ballarat

Everyone’s favorite prehistoric creatures are coming to Ballarat for Jurassic Unearthed by Silvers Circus.

After 42 years on the road, Silvers Circus has evolved into Australia’s premier circus and one of the top 10 in the world. 

The Jurassic Unearthed spectacular will be at the Ballarat Showgrounds from May 10 until May 26.

Before and after the show, you’ll feel like you have stepped back in time as you walk through a jungle full of giant life-like dinosaurs. Expect to see all of your favourite dinosaurs, plus loads more, with photo opportunities galore. 

The 90-minute unique circus experiencewill feature stunning international artists, Las Vegas-style illusions and captivating production techniques. There will even be a surprise appearance from Silvers Circus’ very own resident dinos, Fluffy and Spike.

And brace yourself for the Wheel of Steel, as two young men run, jump, skip and flip through a routine of sheer physical audacity.

“There is a child deep within all of us and I have the great opportunity to realise that child every time I step out on stage,” ringmaster Simon Tait said. “And, with a little coaxing, I am able to prise the child from within each and every person in the audience.”
