Dinosaur Dig Season 2018

Monday, May 07, 2018

Our Dinosaur Dig Season is starting again soon. Digs starts on the 10th May and run through to the 22nd May. We will be excavating bones from a very large concentration of dinosaur bones. Bone excavated to date is indicating that this is a very large dinosaur!

A few positions are still available on the dig and you can join the Dinosaur Dig tagalong tour running on 13th May. Tagalong tour will run other days during the dig but we need them to be booked with a minimum of 4 adults for them to run.

Thank you to Eromanga Contractors, IOR and Santos for their support.


Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if a fossil site is discovered?

After looking at the fossils ensure all fragments are left where they were found in the field as this is crucial to discovering more bones in the same area. Do not disturb site but take a GPS reading and photos. If possible mark the site with a star picket and contact the Eromanga Natural History Museum for a scientific analysis.

Look at the ENHM on-line resources ‘How to recognise dinosaur sites in the Cooper Basin’.
