More information about Kronosaurus Korner

Over 600 fossils on display provide fascinating insights into the creatures that survived in the ancient Eromanga Sea which covered Richmond over 100 million years ago.

Kronosaurus Korner is proud to exhibit many significant specimens, including the Richmond Polycotylid – one of the most complete vertebrate fossils in the world, ‘Wandah’ – Australia’s largest fossil fish and Kunbarrasaurus – a small armoured plant‐eating dinosaur. The museum also displays the largest known collection of fossils belonging to its namesake, Kronosaurus – a 15 metre long predatory pliosaur, which was equipped with enormous crocodile‐like jaws.

Kronosaurus Korner also features a world‐class preparation laboratory, where visitors can watch the careful removal of fossils from their rocky surroundings.

From March to September, fossil hunting enthusiasts can accompany Kronosaurus Korner’s resident palaeontologist on ‘Digging At Dawn’ fieldtrips to Richmond’s famous fossil sites, with additional ‘Mini Palaeo Adventures’ scheduled during school holidays. Bookings can also be made for larger, week‐long ‘CSI: Cretaceous Sea Monster Investigation’ digs in July.
