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

How do you recognise dinosaur fossils’

Fossils are predominantly black coloured and will look different to other rocks in the same area, plus they are heavier than rocks. Often they are broken into irregular fragments and have a porous structure.

Interesting fact: Sometimes if you put your tongue on the rock and it sticks a little bit this can also mean it is a fossil.
