About Muttaburrasaurus Interpretation Centre
The replica of the Muttaburrasaurus langdoni can be found at the Muttaburrasaurus Interpretation Centre. The centre has interpretative displays including replicas of the original bones, history of the dinosaurs and the story of how the Muttaburrasaurus was discovered.
In 1963 local grazier, the late Doug Langdon discovered the fossilized skeleton of a dinosaur near the Thomson River at Muttaburra. This was the second most complete dinosaur skeleton found in Queensland and is the first of five Muttaburrasaurus skeletons found in Australia. The Muttaburrasaurus was a plant-eating, land-living dinosaur that roamed the Earth around 100 million years ago. The fossilised remains of the dinosaur are currently housed in the Queensland Museum in Brisbane.
