Parties with Dr Livinia-Stone

Who is “Dr Livinia-Stone”???  

Dr Livinia

Dr Livinia - Exploring the Jungle

The Doc is the great-great-great-granddaughter of the amazing explorer Dr Livingstone (You know the guy ... “Dr Livingstone I presume...”)

Of course over the years the Livingstone family dispersed around the world. Dr Livinia landed in the Northern Territory’s outback and found all sorts of amazing creatures living there.  But she never rests and is always looking for adventure and fun in all parts of Sydney.

Dr Livinia brings fun, adventure, laughter and learning to your child’s party.  Many of our packages are hosted by Dr Livinia, geared up with her safari suit & hat. She will keep the kids amused and entertained for her whole visit.

(Her story of course isn’t real but we have wild imaginations here!)


“Amazing Bugs Party” - 1 hour

In this package, Dr Livinia brings her amazing gentle mini beasts to your child’s party.

There are a variety of mini beasts which are seasonal and can include Spiny leaf insects, Crown insects, Spur Legged, Margin Wings and Goliath insects. Regardless of the season, there will always be fascinating bugs to amaze all the kids.

The kids will have an opportunity to:

  • Spend time with the bugs in our walk-in enclosure
  • get up close and personal with each creature
  • hold and experience how the creatures like to sit and move on their own arms
  • feed the bugs
  • take lots of photos holding these unique mini beasts.
  • time for inquisitive minds to ask questions and get into the world of invertebrates.
  • do themed colouring in, activity sheets and have some play dough fun 

And for the more skeptical guests (usually the grown ups!) there’s plenty to appreciate from a short distance too. One things for sure, by the end of the party everyone falls in love with these unique, amazing creatures.

In rotation, the kids will enjoy times in our walk in enclosure allowing time with each of insects and a sense of entering their world.  In the enclosure, they will get time holding, observing and even feeding the mini beasts.

Throughout your party, there are bug related activities that are provided age appropriate to your group. We bring play dough (freshly made on the day of your party) for sculpting insects, word puzzles, bug themed drawing and colouring-in.

A great hit at each party is our bug hunt. An adventure with Dr Livinia, exploring the plants and insects that can be found in the surrounds of your party. Any back yard usually has more than you can imagine. Parks are superb locations for our parties too!

Inclusions: Package includes Dr Livina, live animals and all equipment.

Price: $290.00
