Start your exploration at Kronosaurus Korner, home of Australia’s premier marine fossil collection, originating from the Great Inland Sea that existed 110 million years ago. Meet ‘Penny’ the Richmond Pliosaur, Australia’s most complete marine vertebrate specimen. Learn about fossils, fossil-hunting and the preparation and lab techniques used to prepare these astounding displays.
Head out to one of the dedicated fossil hunting sites to try and find a fossil of your own! Any finds can be taken into Kronosaurus Korner to be identified. Finish your day by wetting a line and catching a barra for dinner or just take an evening stroll around Lake Fred Tritton.
Follow the Heritage Walk around town, taking in the business precinct from yesteryear and enjoy the local artefacts of historical and cultural significance at the Cambridge Downs Heritage Display Centre. Take some time to investigate the diverse flora in the Bush Tucker Garden.
