Children At The Museum

Waiting Room

Children’s toys and books are available to use while you are waiting for next tour in the museum waiting room.

Infants Free

Infants 0 to 4 years of age are free of charge but must be accompanied by their parents.

Children

Children admissions are 5 to 12 years of age

Students

Student admissions are High School and Tertiary Education students and they must produce their student ID card.

Students will discover how the fossils are found, excavated, prepared and replicated and researched. They will have the opportunity to touch real fossils, use the tools that Fossil Preparators use to clean the bones and go behind the scenes to see a working and hand-on Fossil Laboratory.

Our Education Program is still under development but we are hoping to have it up and running by April 2017.

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.
