Eromanga one of the 15 Lesser Known ‘Must See’ Aussie Destinations

Thursday, February 01, 2018

Eromanga Natrual History Museum made the Skyscanner list for the top 15 Lesser Known 'Must See' Aussie Destinations. Below is an extract of the article:

"Unless you’re a fossil geek you’ve probably never considered dinosaur bones for holiday inspiration. What if we told you that the teeny Outback QLD town of Eromanga, with a population of just 45 hardy souls, is kicking some serious fossillised butt on the world stage? Check into recently opened Coopers Lodge which is next door to Eromanga Natural History Museum, fossil HQ for the most exciting and prolific dinosaur site in Australia. The stories shared here are seriously impressive." -  SkyScanner Friday, 26 January 2018


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’.
