Kronosaurus Korner

Richmond, Richmond Area

Visiting Australia's premier marine fossil museum, Kronosaurus Korner, is an unforgettable prehistoric adventure, where you see some of the most awe inspiring marine creatures such as 'Penny' the Richmond plesiosaur - Australia's best vertebrate fossil, 'Krono' Kronosaurus queenslandicus - a 10 metre, giant marine reptile and 'Wanda' - Australia's largest fossilised fish.

Although the museum has mostly marine creatures, there are two dinosaurs; 'Mia' Minmi paravertebra - with impressions of its fossilised skin, it is considered to be Australia's best-preserved dinosaur skeleton and 'Marlin's Beastie' sauropod - a gigantic plant-eating dinosaur.

The museum offers hand-held audio guides for a self-paced tour, starting with a theatrette presentation where you can step back in time and watch their prehistoric sea monsters come back to life.

With a modern, fully equipped preparation laboratory, visitors to the museum can view fossils being processed (via a glass viewing window).The preparation techniques carried out at Kronosaurus Korner are of a world class standard.

Kronosaurus Korner is also an accredited visitor information centre; our friendly staff can provide you with both local and regional information. The souvenir shop stocks a wide range of toys, gifts and apparel for both adults and children.
