This unique fossil collection represents the extensive Australian dinosaurs, megafauna, microfauna & plants, which grows each year and is a quality and quantity rarely seen in context of a single collection. These collections will allow us to preserve and study the diversity and evolution of this region, from the age of dinosaurs to the age of man.
A visit to the Eromanga Natural History Museum is an interactive experience where you learn to recognise dinosaur fossils from paddock to laboratory. Hands-on experiences include removing the rock using specialised tools to expose the fossilised bone and talking to locals who dig up the bones and prepare them for display. Learn more at the website.
