New Facilities at Cooper's Country Lodge

Friday, July 27, 2018

During the past couple of months guests and staff have been watching our newest building grow. Now almost done it's time to take a look at our newest edition to the Lodge and the Museum Reserve. The new kitchen and laundry facility will be used to cater for guests and also is a preempted build for the upcoming Stage 2.  With the laundry facilty being large enough to cater for our expected growth int he near future. Guests will get the benefit of a guest laundry all for themselves and the option to hire out the kitchen facility to cater for themselves or groups. 

Funds for the kitchen and laundry build were supplied by the Quilpie Shire Council, and building has been completed by Peter at Holling's Construction. We thank them for their support towards our project and we are excited to be able to create a new facility to make guests experience better and jobs easier.  

 


Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Holotype?

A holotype is a valuable original specimen that describes a new species.  It is a term used to describe a specimen that is the first known of its kind anywhere in the world.  A holotype can be any type of fossil, and it serves as the name-bearer of the species.  Even if a better specimen is found, the holotype is not superseded.  These are rare and exciting discoveries, which help fill important gaps in the fossil record. 

Every animal and plant that is scientifically described is represented by a holotype.  If a scientist wishes to study the unique traits of a species, it is usually the holotype specimen they study.  The holotypes are the crown jewels of any museum collection.  These priceless specimens need to be stored and conserved at standards that meet the Code of International Zoological Nomenclature.
