Visiting Australia's premier marine fossil museum, Kronosaurus Korner, is an unforgettable prehistoric adventure, where you see some of the most awe inspiring marine creatures such as 'Penny' the Richmond plesiosaur - Australia's best vertebrate fossil, 'Krono' Kronosaurus queenslandicus - a 10 metre, giant marine reptile and 'Wanda' - Australia's largest fossilised fish.

Although the museum has mostly marine creatures, there are two dinosaurs; 'Mia' Minmi paravertebra - with impressions of its fossilised skin, it is considered to be Australia's best-preserved dinosaur skeleton and 'Marlin's Beastie' sauropod - a gigantic plant-eating dinosaur.

The museum offers hand-held audio guides for a self-paced tour, starting with a theatrette presentation where you can step back in time and watch our prehistoric sea monsters come back to life.

With a modern, fully equipped preparation laboratory, visitors to the museum can view fossils being processed (via a glass viewing window).The preparation techniques carried out at Kronosaurus Korner are of a world class standard.

Kronosaurus Korner is also an accredited visitor information centre; our friendly staff can provide you with both local & regional information. The souvenir shop stocks a wide range of toys, gifts and apparel for both adults and children.
