Tourism businesses to share in $1.8 million Digital Grant funding

Eromanga Natural History Museum, located in one of Australia’s paleontological hotspots in South West Queensland, is one of 25 Queensland tourism and tourism-related businesses who have been awarded funding through round three of the Small Business Digital Grants program. More than half of these businesses were located outside of South East Queensland.

Robyn MacKenzie, Operations and Collection Manager at the Museum, says they will use the grant to establish an online shop and e-newsletter.

“We’re excited to receive this grant so we can expand the museum shop online and reach a broader audience through our e-newsletter,” says Ms MacKenzie.

The Small Business Digital Grants Program provides small businesses with access to digital technologies and services to enable them to work smarter, engage with the global economy and make the most of online business opportunities arising from digital disruption.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between megafauna fossils and dinosaur fossils?

Dinosaurs are reptiles that went extinct 64 million years ago. They grew to gigantic sizes.  They lived in a time when Australia was a very different place to what it is today, and part of the ancient landmass called Gondwana. The Eromanga dinosaurs are estimated to be 95-98 million years old and lived during the late Cretaceous.

Megafauna are the group of animals that evolved after the dinosaurs died.  They were very large marsupials, reptiles and flightless birds and went extinct about 20,000 years ago.  Some of their descendants still exist today in much smaller forms such as kangaroos, wombats, komodo dragons and crocodiles.  The Eulo megafauna lived during Pleistocene approximately 50,000 to 100,000 years ago.
