KRONOSAURUS KORNER

*Requires travel to Richmond, Queensland, included as it is a favourite outback adventure for Townsville families*

Kronosaurus Korner is Australia’s premier marine fossil museum.

It showcases nearly 1,150 unique fossil specimens from Richmond, Outback Queensland.
Fossils from the area include the 100-115 million year old remains of extinct marine reptiles, fishes, ammonites and squids that once dominated Australia’s ancient inland sea.

While fossils of extinct marine reptiles were found in the area during the 1860s, the catalyst for developing the museum occurred in 1989 with the discovery of the spectacular ‘Richmond Pliosaur’ on a property called Marathon Station near Richmond.

The ‘Richmond Pliosaur’ was recognised by palaeontologists for representing one of the best preserved Cretaceous marine reptile fossils in the world.
