Richmond is home to the Award winning Kronosaurus Korner. Inside Kronosaurus Korner you'll find the only centre in Australia primarily dedicated to displaying marine reptiles, as well as a very special dinosaur. Minmi, with impressions of its fossilised skin, is considered to be Australia's best-preserved dinosaur skeleton. The Richmond Pliosaur here is Australia's best vertebrate fossil, and one of the world's best skeleton fossils.

The centre is home to over 400 fossil specimens dating back to the Cretaceous Period, 98 - 114 million years ago, when Richmond was part of the inland sea. Don't miss the themed theatrette and hand-held audio guides which are available for self-paced and self-guided tours.

If you find that you're infected with fossil fever after visiting Kronosaurus Korner, grab a map to guide you through the region's designated fossicking site. The friendly staff will be happy to identify your finds.

Relax in the Moon Rock Cafe and enjoy a meal or light refreshment and buy a souvenir to remind you of your visit. Kronosaurus Korner has to be seen to be believed!
