Eromanga Natural History Museum
The Eromanga Natural History Museum showcases the incredible diversity of the Outback’s natural history – from the tiniest fossils to the mightiest dinosaurs Australia has ever seen.
We are supporting the Eromanga Natural History Museum with an investment of $2 million to extend the viewing galleries showcasing the 30-metre skeleton of Australia’s largest dinosaur, a Titanosaur called Cooper.
The facilities, which will operate with renewable power supplies, include an interpretation corridor with glazed viewing of the real bones looking into a holotype room as well as the ability to inspect the fossil collection room and plant room.
The re-development of the museum will create new jobs during construction as well as in an ongoing capacity once operational – providing economic benefits by driving economic growth and visitation and is expected to be completed by September 2021.
This project is a part of the $25 million Growing Tourism Infrastructure (GTI) Fund 2020/21 and is a key element of Queensland’s Economic Recovery Strategy: Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs to help accelerate the State’s recovery from COVID-19.
