🦴🔊 Fossil Laboratory ASMR from our friends at @australianageofdinosaurs 🔊🦴

The rock that encapsulates fossils can be stubborn and so the Museum’s fossil technicians have to use powerful tools to remove it. ⛏️

🎧 Listen as Honorary Technician, Hugh, uses an air chisel to remove hard siltstone between a rib and humerus (upper arm bone) of the sauropod ‘Judy’ 🦕

Did you know winter is prime time for stargazing? Clearer skies and the centre of the Milky Way pass overhead during these months 🌌 Being 400km from the closest city definitely has its perks! If you haven't experienced the night sky beyond city lights, trust us—the first time will leave you in awe.

Who wouldn't want to spend hours under these stars? ✨

Did you know Queensland has its very own fossil emblem? It's the mighty Muttaburrasaurus langdoni, a plant-eating giant who roamed our state over 100 million years ago!

The Muttaburrasaurus is a true Aussie icon, and you can head to @visithughenden's Flinders Discovery Centre and come face-to-face with this prehistoric legend!
