Today was more about the fossils in the area.
We firstly drove about an hour to Richmond and visited Kronosauras Korner. Here we spent about an hour and a half looking at the amazing collection of fossils from the Cretaceous Inland Sea that covered inland Queensland 120 million years ago. The Richmond Pilosaur was our favourite.
We then went out to one of the dig sites in great anticipation (tools in hand) with the expectation that we were going to find the next great discovery. It was quite evident very early that we wouldn't be successful when the curator came over and told us we were digging in the wrong spot. I'm glad he wasn't watching us when we were hammering and chiselling away. Anything that may have been of national significance is now a pile of dust!
We then made our way back to Hughenden and dropped in to the Flinders Discovery Centre. Although we learnt a great deal about the layers of soil over the last 500 million years, this centre didn't compare to Winton & Richmond and lost our interest fairly quickly.
