Eromanga Natural History Museum

 

The Eromanga Natural History Museums collection contains Australian dinosaur and other fossilised fauna and flora from Australia’s newest palaeontological frontier in South-west Queensland, and represents specimens that are “new” to science and some of the largest and most complete dinosaurs in the world.

The Outback Gondwana Foundation provides funds for the Eromanga Natural History Museum to run the annual Eromanga dinosaur digs and the annual Eulo Megafauna digs and is helping to bring these scientifically and unique discoveries to the world

However, dinosaurs and fossils are only part of this unique and valuable collection which also contains amazing examples of the geological, extant floral and faunal diversity and cultural heritage of South- West Queensland.

Natural Sciences Loop Road

The Eromanga Natural History Museum is located on the Natural Sciences Loop Road in South West Queensland. The loop includes Charleville, Quilpie, Eromanga, Thargomindah, and Cunnamullla.

The sights along the way include the diverse areas of astronomy, geology, paleontology, cultural heritage, history, and the unique flora and fauna of the region.

South-west Queensland remains a largely untapped resource, in terms of scientific research. The potential for unique discoveries from the region is substantial and has already been proven, with the discovery of: a new species of dinosaur; several new species of insects and spiders and numerous, as-yet-untouched dinosaur sites and other fossilised fauna sites. Opportunities abound for keen researchers in the scientific community.
