“Kronosaurus Korner Richmond Queensland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Kronosaurous Korner Richmond is a small town with big monsters. the fossils may not have been friendly but the locals certainly are. Great palce. A dusty outback town. Real Australia.

“Best in State!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

This is a 1st-class dinosaur museum. Normally you would have to travel to a capital city to see this many marine dinosaur fossils displayed in such an excellent facility - in fact I think KK beats the Queensland Museum. It is a credit to the founder (a local farmer) and the staff that it is held in such high regard that the Queensland Museum is actually returning previously donated fossils.
Touring the museum is self-paced with an audio guide. There is also a gift shop and a tidy café with a full lunch menu.
We found it well worth the 3 hour drive from Winton. We were in a 4WD but a sedan would have sufficed (not sure if that would always be true - roads appeared recently graded). Richmond is also accessible from Townsville as an alternative, but I would still recommend Winton to see the other dinosaur attractions too (Australian Age of Dinosaurs and Lark Quarry).

“Worth the drive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

This can be out of the way of a normal outback trip but it is well worth the drive. There is a recorded guided tour that you can do at your own pace which was really informative and interesting. It was a great inclusion to the dinosaur trail.

“Great coffee from the bakery/cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

We only popped into the Bakery/cafe on the way through Richmond. We purchased a coffee and a chicken and mushroom pie. The coffee was surprisingly delicious (rivalling the coffee we had in Melbourne!) and the pie was really tasty.
