Working in tourism with dinosaurs in Outback South West Queensland

Eromanga Natural History Museum is Australia’s newest dinosaur museum, great to visit whether you learn how prepare a dinosaur bone, learn about the bizarre animals that came after the dinosaur died, the megafauna or go on a dinosaur dig. This developing museum is becoming a more and more popular destination as the word gets out. Increasingly, people of all ages are choosing to find work outside of the metropolitan centres to experience South West Queensland’s outback.

From time to time, opportunities exist for seasonal and permanent employees at the Eromanga Natural History Museum for those who are willing to learn new skills, enjoy working with people, love dinosaurs and our Australian natural history and have a great work ethic.

If you are interested in living and working as part of a committed team that is literally helping to grow the early stages of one of the most significant natural history museums in the Australian Outback as a major tourism destination, please contact us with your details. We would love to hear from you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Holotype?

A holotype is a valuable original specimen that describes a new species.  It is a term used to describe a specimen that is the first known of its kind anywhere in the world.  A holotype can be any type of fossil, and it serves as the name-bearer of the species.  Even if a better specimen is found, the holotype is not superseded.  These are rare and exciting discoveries, which help fill important gaps in the fossil record. 

Every animal and plant that is scientifically described is represented by a holotype.  If a scientist wishes to study the unique traits of a species, it is usually the holotype specimen they study.  The holotypes are the crown jewels of any museum collection.  These priceless specimens need to be stored and conserved at standards that meet the Code of International Zoological Nomenclature.
