About Muttaburrasaurus Interpretation Centre


The replica of the Muttaburrasaurus Langdoni has a new home in the Muttaburrasaurus Interpretation Centre. 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.
