Riversleigh Fossil Centre

Mount Isa, Mount Isa Area

Fossils. If you think they're a dry and dusty subject that only palaeontologists and university professors would be interested in, you haven't experienced the incredible Riversleigh Fossil Centre, part of the multi-award winning Outback at Isa complex.

Feel yourself virtually transported to a bygone world when you come face-to-face with the prehistoric inhabitants of Outback Australia. Far removed from the latter-day realities of technological advancement and space travel, the Riversleigh Fossil Centre reconstructs the world as it was millions of years ago.

It's exciting, it's exotic and it's like nothing else you've ever seen. Inside the state-of-the-art museum, video displays and dioramas bring the world alive in a colourful way, while scientific displays of fossils give an accurate look at what remains of that ancient world.

You can also take a guided tour of the laboratory where Outback at Isa's resident palaeontologist and trained staff free fossil bones of extinct creatures from limestone and piece the puzzle of their lives back together.
