Mammoths – Giants of the Ice Age is an interactive exhibition that will take visitors back in time. The highlight of the exhibition is baby mammoth Lyuba, the best preserved woolly mammoth in existence.

Lyuba was discovered in 2007 in Siberia and has been preserved for more than 40,000 years.

It will be the fifth time Lyuba has been seen outside Russia and her first appearance in the Southern Hemisphere.

Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall said the NSW Government is committed to continuing to develop world-class events.

“Securing exhibitions such as this will help us maintain our position as the number one tourism and events state in Australia,” Mr Marshall said.

The exhibition will open on 18 November 2017.
