The dramatic metallic blades of The Concourse, Chatswood’s cultural hub, will be the backdrop to Gondwana Light Lab, a fascinating and futuristic exploration of creatures from the Triassic southern supercontinent, Gondwana.

Through the scientific instruments of our Light Lab, we observe dinosaurs evolving from their origins in the depths of the ocean, then moving onto land, and ultimately climbing trees and escarpments from which they launch themselves into the air.

We study these intriguing animals through magnifying glasses and microscopes, zooming in to see their amazing skin, scales and cells up close. We turn on our X-ray to analyse their skeletons and use computed tomography to see right though them.
