Discover Australian Dinosaurs

Eromanga Dinosaurs

The Eromanga Natural History Museum is discovering new Australian dinosaurs in an area of Australia where they have previously never been found.  Australia's South West Queensland's Channel Country is home to Australia’s largest dinosaur fossil discoveries, the 95-98 million year old Eromanga dinosaurs. These exciting new dinosaurs are some of the world’s largest dinosaurs. See more...

Discover Australian Megafauna

Eulo Megafauna & Microfauna

Dozens of estimated 50,000 year old megafauna and microfauna sites are being discovered near Eulo in South West Queensland. We are finding megafauna and microfauna fossils from extinct animals, preserved in special clays with exceptional preservation. There are dozens of species and an accumulation of sites in numbers not seen before in Australia. See more...

Building a Museum for Dinosaurs & Megafauna

The Outback Gondwana Foundation is working very hard to build a natural history museum so that finally you can see this yet unseen and exceptionally rare arid Australia fossil heritage.

The Eromanga Natural History Museum is a catalytic project for Australian regional development and is dedicated to realising the educational, tourism and economic potential of this internationally significant Australia fossil heritage. The museum is located just outside of Eromanga but is also near Quilpie, one of the major centres in South West Queensland's Channel Country. The first steps to develop the museum site have begun but more funding is needed. We will then be able to show you these prehistoric Australian giants in the area they were found, so you can begin to comprehend their size, their story and where they have come from.

Help us create Australian history and build the Eromanga Natural History Museum. Find out how you can help.

Learn

The Eromanga Natural History Museum is collecting, documenting and recording our arid Australian natural history, our plants and animals that have evolved since the dinosaurs and the megafauna. With the help of our modern day plants and animals we can compare them with our prehistoric plants and animals, all from the same place but from many different times throughout the prehistoric ages of Upper Murray and Lake Eyre/Cooper basins in Australia.

The Eromanga Natural History Museum will convert this mass of discovery and knowledge into scientifically proven fact. It will translate this into educational outcomes and publishable knowledge to benefit the world. We want to present this knowledge so that you can easily understand the story of this land spanning hundreds of millions of years.

Help build the Eromanga Natural History Museum - home for Australia's largest dinosaurs.

Finding Eromanga

Eromanga is in Australia's South West Queensland, Channel Country and is just a few hours flight and a short drive or an easy two day drive from capital cities.

Eromanga is the largest town in the Cooper Basin. The Cooper Basin, and the overlying Eromanga Basin, host Australia’s largest and most prolific producing onshore oil and gas development. Eromanga is one of the oldest towns in the history of Queensland, gazetted in March 1879. Throughout its long history it has become famous for its boulder opal fields, pioneering pastoral families and properties, gas & oil, the Guinness Record Steve Fossett ‘Spirit of Freedom’ solo balloon flight landing site, and now to add to the list Eromanga is famous for being the home to Australia’s largest dinosaurs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between megafauna fossils and dinosaur fossils?

Dinosaurs are reptiles that went extinct 64 million years ago. They grew to gigantic sizes.  They lived in a time when Australia was a very different place to what it is today, and part of the ancient landmass called Gondwana. The Eromanga dinosaurs are estimated to be 95-98 million years old and lived during the late Cretaceous.

Megafauna are the group of animals that evolved after the dinosaurs died.  They were very large marsupials, reptiles and flightless birds and went extinct about 20,000 years ago.  Some of their descendants still exist today in much smaller forms such as kangaroos, wombats, komodo dragons and crocodiles.  The Eulo megafauna lived during Pleistocene approximately 50,000 years ago.
