The Mini Beasts return to Robina Town Centre

The much-loved giant insect quartet are back by popular demand

Gold Coast’s shopping, dining, entertainment and community hub Robina Town Centre is bringing its September school holiday program forward by a month to keep the positive vibes rolling now that lockdown’s been lifted, delivering local families with a mesmerising exhibition and activity program that will set kids’ imaginations abuzz.

Landing at the centre this week and in line with COVID-19 regulations, Mini Beasts is back by popular demand after its dazzling debut in 2020, bringing with it the much-loved giant insect quartet, and dropping a brand-new entertainment series that will provide the perfect post-lockdown antidote for families needing a healthy dose of fun.

The four metre glittering creatures are brought to life through cutting-edge technology; bejewelled in thousands of tiny lights, colourful textiles and special effects to create a captivating spectacle and contactless experience throughout the centre for shoppers to admire and engage with.

The insect invasion comprises a shimmering Australian Swallowtail Butterfly hand-crafted with more than 2,800 lights; a Neon Cuckoo Bee that buzzes when activated by laser-powered sensors; a humming Cicada; and larger-than-life Australian Jumping Spider, each individually designed with customised light and sound technology.

Families can follow the interactive trail to discover the brilliantly-coloured quartet in key locations around Robina Town Centre, using special QR codes to not only track down the throng of flying beasts, but also collect a Mini Beast show bag once the journey is complete and go in the draw to win a $500 centre gift card.

For parents wishing for something a little more ‘hands on’ for the kids post-lockdown there is a fresh new Mini Beasts activity program from the 21 September, coinciding with the launch of the spring school holidays.
