Featured on Queensland Weekender

Monday, August 21, 2017

Eromanga Natural History Museum has recently featured on Queensland Weekender in a 4 part series documenting The Natural Sciences Loop.

 


As quoted on Queensland Weekender, August 12, 2017:

The Natural Sciences Loop is a self-guided drive itinerary that kicks off in Charleville and takes in some of Australia’s most remote communities – including Quilpie, Eromanga, Thargomindah and Cunnamulla. Along the way tourists can visit many local attractions that highlight the region’s stunning landscapes and natural history.

The Eromanga Natural History Museum has an incredible collection of dinosaur and mega- fauna fossils dating back almost 100 million years. The museum has become a major tourist attraction in south-west Queensland. It offers various tours so visitors can learn about Australia’s ancient inhabitants. It also has a learning program for kids that trains the palaeontologists of tomorrow.

Right next door is the recently opened Cooper’s Country Lodge. There are 6 studios, including one family suite, and they all offer 4-star outback luxury.

To see all 4 parts of the series and find out more about Queensland Weekender and The Natural Sciences Loop review check out the full Queensland Weekender page titled Charleville to Eromanga.

 




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.
