Wildlife of Gondwana: Beasts of The Great Southern Supercontinent 

26 July 2015 - 23 July 2017

Who Ate My Dinosaur [Prep - 6]

Meet some polar dinosaurs as you help our palaeontologists search for one very hungry dinosaur who has been munching on their fossils! We'll cast a footprint, look at the physical features of dinosaurs, and even delve into some stomach contents to find our hungry dinosaur.

Students will be exposed to new vocabulary and consider how we organise and connect information to understand the past environment.

Curriculum Connections: Biological Sciences, Earth Sciences, Geography

Australian Dinosaurs [5 - VCE]

Get to know the creatures in your own backyard! Meet some of our prehistoric ancestors from the age of polar dinosaurs when Australia was part of the supercontinent Gondwana.

Students will view a digital map of the evolving earth and take a close look at how the fossil record can help us to understand our changing environment.

Surrounded by life-life environmental murals, the exhibition features real fossils, skeletons and 20 full-scale skeletal casts.
