MARYBOROUGH'S Explore-a-Saurus exhibit has been hailed a huge success, with about 300 people visiting a day since it opened.

Councillor Christ Loft said the exhibit had attracted an overwhelmingly positive response from the public.

He said for smallchildren the event could be a bit scary.

"But everyone else is amazed," Cr Loft said.

Cr Loft said people had been visiting from far and wide to see the animatronic dinosaurs and other aspects of the exhibition for themselves.

"About 20% of people who have visited are from outside the area," he said.

The exhibit will run until April next year.
