Australia’s largest dinosaur, Cooper, is closer to finding a home in South Western Queensland with the Eromanga Natural History Museum Project a top contender in the latest round (2) of RADF funding to be announced in May by Minister for Regional Development, Simon Crean.
For seven years, the Outback Gondwana Foundation has developed the Eromanga Natural History Museum concept in partnership with Santos, Quilpie Shire Council, the Queensland Museum, and Beach Energy. It is considered a priority project for SW Queensland and part of Regional Development Australia’s Roadmap, with realisation as early as 2013.
The museum will not only house Cooper, Australia’s largest dinosaur, but also a unique and valuable natural history collection. This collection has a remarkable variety of fossil flora and fauna in addition to the huge dinosaur bones, discovered recently on properties in the district. It includes teeth and bones from numerous extinct Australian animals and plants ranging in age from 100 million years old to 20,000 years old.
