Family Day activities are FREE. Entry to Sea Monsters exhibition requires a ticket.

Have fun with interactive performances with Erth’s Roaming Prehistoric Aquarium as they bring ancient sea creatures to life at Yarrila Place, Coffs Harbour!

Experience roving, interactive performances with master puppeteers Erth and their prehistoric marine reptiles at Yarrila Place.

Meet the playful Plesiosaurs and evade the fearsome Kronosaurus. Be careful not to be lured in by the mysterious Anglerfish!

For over 30 years, Erth have delighted, challenged, and inspired audiences around the world with their flagship shows Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo and Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium.

Enjoy them for one day only – Saturday 24 February from 10:30 to 1:30 at Yarrila Place. Erth’s work blends exquisite puppetry and irreverent humour with scientific rigour, inspiring awe and wonder.

Let your imagination run wild and create a sea monster masterpiece!

Visit The Workshop at Yarrila Arts and Museum (YAM) and explore the form and function of some of the incredible beasts that once dominated our oceans. Combine these forms to create your very own sea monster with its own unique function and name.
