“Fossil fossicking in Outback Queensland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Fantastic trip organised by the Australian Museum Society. Visited the Kronosaurus Korner museum and the Age of Dinosaurs Museum. Both fascinating (if you're into that sort of thing!). Saw the 'dinosaur stampede' footprints preserved at Lark Quarry, got to play Lego with a dinosaur skeleton at The Age of Dinosaurs museum, and dug up 10 million year old marine fossils in a quarry at Richmond (an activity anyone can do) with the Kronosaurus Korner museum. Amazing!! And the Outback scenery was beautiful - it's great to get out there and see The Real Australia!

“Fossils Galore!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The kids loved it and so did I! Really well laid out and very unique in the displays.
Another fabulous thing is that if you take your 'finds' from the council dig sites back here, they will spend time identifying what you have (or haven't) found and also supply you with a great fact sheet on the fossils in your rocks.
A fossicking hammer can be purchased for a reasonable amount here and, as there seems to be nowhere else to get one in the area, it is a good place to purchase one! Good range of other purchase=able goods in the souvenir line, all with a dinosaur flavour!

“Enjoyed by the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We enjoyed looking at their collection of fossils, we went up to the quarry sites but had no luck.
The food in the cafe was excellent although the staff were not very friendly and service was slow

“Dinosaur Trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

A great leg in the dinosaur trail (hughenden/winton/longreach) seeing all three attractions really completes the inland sea story.

“Excellen fossil collecton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

the fossils here are particularly well presented. The display is well laid out and contains excellent examples. It has a fossil preparation area, activities for children. The short film display is informative. Cafe and shop are on site.
