Beasts of the Great Southern Supercontinent. A Dinosaur Exhibition - meet Cryolohophosaurus the Antarctic dinosaur, Megalania the giant lizard and his lunch: Bullockornus the giant flightless bird.

Global environmental crisis. Food shortages. Birds so big they couldn’t fly and one big, mean ol’ nasty komodo dragon-like creature. 

Surrounded by life-like environmental murals, the exhibition features real fossils, skeletons and 20 full-scale skeletal casts, many of which have never been on public display in Australia before. From PrimeSCI! and the Monash University Collection.
