Porcupine Gorge is nothing short of breath-taking, located 60km north west of @visithughenden. Its impressive canyon reveals strata of sedimentary rocks spanning hundreds of millions of years. The National Park’s pockets of vine forest and deep permanent waterholes contrast strikingly with the surrounding savannah plains.

Now that Autumn weather has arrived, it's the perfect time for exploring the Gorge! With a little planning, you can enjoy a refreshing midday swim in the gorge's flowing waters. The warm autumn sun will ensure a comfortable dip in this incredible outback paradise.

🔍🦴 Bernie and Gibbsy at @australianageofdinosaurs, showcasing the fruits of their three-day stint at the Exhibition Development Facility recently! 🌟 

These fossils are a row of dorsal vertebrae from a magnificent ichthyosaur discovered by Cassandra Prince in 2022 and generously donated to the Museum last year.

The aim? To fully prepare and mount this stunning specimen for exhibition before the year's end 🗓️
