🔍🦴 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 🗓️

Have you heard of one of Australia’s last remaining open air cinemas? 🍿 

Not your typical drive-in or outdoor park cinema – we're talking the real deal, where you step out from the main building into an enclosed theatre under the night sky, welcomed by a gentle night breeze and a canvas.

@royal_theatre_winton, standing since 1918, has weathered fires, transformed into a skating rink, witnessed The Proposition's premiere (2005), and proudly hosted Vision Splendid since 2013, to name a few. There’s no end to the charm that is felt when you attend a screening at this iconic Winton landmark 🎞

Their season runs from April-November, so be sure to visit and catch a film in between dinosaur fun!
