Help dig up Australia’s largest dinosaurs and megafauna!

Queensland has been home to ground-breaking dinosaur discoveries since the 1930’s when a Rhoetosaurus discovered near Roma, Outback Queensland.

 

Since then the Outback has been known to be a treasure box full of ancient artefacts dating from well before we walked the Earth. New discoveries of relatively complete dinosaurs and megafauna from Outback Queensland are now putting Australia on the global dinosaur and megafauna map and opening up a ‘new frontier’ for dinosaur research. You can now be apart of this history making process at the Eromanga Natural History Museum when you join one of their dinosaur or megafauna digs.

The Eromanga Natural History Museum offer Australia’s ultimate hands-on Megafauna and Dinosaur experience, where you will learn how to dig up Australia’s ancient wonders in the area home to Australia’s largest dinosaurs with the guidance from the museum’s dedicated team of experts and staff. Their small group sizes will give you a specialised experience, making your Outback Queensland holiday one to remember.
