It’s giveaway time! The Australian Museum are kindly giving away 3 double passes to their special after-hours Halloween event at their Jurassic Lounge, which will include exclusive access to the newest exhibition Spiders: Alive & Deadly.

Featuring live music and performance, interactive games, hands-on workshops and pop-up bars, this is a ghoulish 18+ way to celebrate Halloween. Check out flesh eating beetles and taxidermy skins followed by insect tasting with Bug Chef. And to top the night off, let your morbid, sly wit shine through by planning your own funeral.

How to enter 

The male Peacock Spider is a beautiful species with really unique vibrant colourings. The colourful abdomen of the spider is used to attract females, much like the peacock – hence the name. And aren’t we lucky, these little guys called Australia home.

Simply leave a comment on our Facebook post with your best caption of the above spider image. We’ll select three entries at random to win the tickets.
