Awesome Accreditation

Wednesday, April 04, 2018

Over the period of the last few months of 2017 ENHM has been working hard to get accredited with the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program (ATAP). And after this period ENHM is now a member of this program. This week we sat down with a representative from the ATAP team to assess and finally award us our shinny green tick of approval. The process included each document of importance at the museum to be uploaded and checked towards the national accreditation standards. Accreditation now opens up opportunities for the museum to be in the running for prestigious awards at the Australian and Regional Tourism Award Ceremonies.   ...read more

Very Eager Volunteers

Tuesday, April 03, 2018

Imagine the mammoth task of being placed in front of a bucket of megafauna mud and being told to find fossils the size of a pin head. Well this was the task ahead for our newest volunteer Steve Young. A commercial photographer from coughs harbor enjoys the small finer things in life, like taking photos of minuscule fungi’s. Luckily for us, Steve wanted to develop he interest in microscopic things and share his skills with us and help build our collection. After two weeks of working through less than a millimeter in size sediments, Steve’s collection of finds was extensive and exciting and including that of a partial lower jaw from a small 100,000-year-old Gekkonid. With a heavy heart Steve left us and will be returning again later in the year.   ...read more

After two years of waiting the ENHM team are back at it again, at the Eromanga Dinosaur Dig.

Unveiling of this new dinosaur site began in 2015 and since has seen to become the resting place of the largest concentration of large sauropods in Australia and unearthing another individual representing the largest dinosaurs in Australia. This is not only the first dig since ENHM has been open, but the first Dino Dig that we are taking on paid participants. This once in a life time opportunity gives everyday people the chance to experience life as a Dino Digger, uncovering what lies beneath with a great group of people.  ...read more

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do the Eromanga dinosaurs and the Eulo Diprotodon (Megafauna) have common names like Cooper, George, Sid, Zac and Kenny?

These are identifying names we give a new important dinosaur or megafauna discovery so we know which individual we are talking about. In many cases with the dinosaurs they will be scientifically described as completely new dinosaurs and then they are given a special scientific name.  If they are not a new species then they will already have a special scientific name.  ‘Kenny’ has a scientific name already, Diprotondon optatum.
