Dinosaur discoveries depend on farmers

“In western and south west Queensland, they are digging for treasures from the past – and coming up with finds that will keep palaeontologists busy for decades”, says Keiren McLeonard (ABC Bush Telegraph 29 August 2012).  Read the full article here.

Stuart Mackenzie reflects on the journey

In the “Village Green” section of the Courier Mail (18 August 2012), Stuart Mackenzie describes the amazing journey the project has taken him on over the past eight years.  Read about it in “Have Your Say”.

Dinosaur finds put state in spotlight

A dinosaur rush is on in the state's far southwest. The remains of one of the largest dinosaurs found in the world and the largest in Australia have been uncovered, with Queensland Museum paleontologists tipping more major discoveries to come.

Second time lucky for dinosaurs?

The backers of Eromanga's dinosaur museum believe they have a strong chance of scoring $1.2 million of RADF funding.

Outback Gondwana Foundation


We aim to discover, preserve and display Outback Australia’s dinosaur and fossil heritage, cultural heritage and natural history, in their native environment, for the education and enjoyment of all.


The Outback Gondwana Foundation has established a vast fossil collection from digs around Southwest Queensland – Australia’s newest palaeontological frontier.

This includes specimens that are new to science and dinosaurs that are some of the largest and most complete in the world.

Outback Gondwana Foundation is helping to bring these scientifically significant and unique discoveries to the world.

Dinosaurs are only part of the fossil, cultural, geological, floral and faunal diversity of Southwest Queensland.

Outback Gondwana Foundation wants to share this knowledge with the community through research, field work and outreach activities in the discovery region.



Eromanga Natural History Museum

Local fossils kept in a local museum brings benefits to local communities.


The Outback Gondwana Foundation Limited was established in 2008 as the fund raising and governing body for the development of the Eromanga Natural History Museum (ENHM) in South West Queensland. This regional museum meets strict scientific standards required to maintain the internationally significant dinosaur and megafauna fossils held is its collection as well as developing modern day arid Australian natural history collections.


The first phase of Stage One of the ENHM has been completed.  This is comprised of a large workshop and the first two rooms for the on-site staff accommodation at the ENHM Staff/Volunteer Village.  Currently all operations, fossil storage and preparation are run from the ENHM Workshop.  The Workshop also acts an interim museum interface until the dedicated museum facilities are built in Stage two. Stage two plans are ready to be built and can be built in two phases. The Outback Gondwana Foundation Ltd is a Deductible Gift Recipient and is now seeking sponsorship or contributions to start Stage Two.

If you would like to be a sponsor or contributor towards the development of the ENHM, please contact the Outback Gondwana Foundation Ltd’s Chairman, Stuart Mackenzie
