Richmond Fossil Hunting Sites

Richmond, Richmond Area

Unlock your inner-palaeontologist and explore Australia’s ancient marine past at Richmond’s Free Fossil Hunting Sites. The ancient treasures of the Free Fossil Hunting Sites were deposited around 100 million years ago when Richmond was covered by a shallow inland sea.

By turning a few stones over you may uncover a fossil fish, squid, shark tooth, bivalve or giant marine reptile. Who knows, your discoveries may change how palaeontologist interpret Australia’s ancient past.

The Free Fossil Hunting Sites are located 12 kilometres North of Richmond, Outback Queensland and are accessible to all vehicles via fully sealed roads.

The easiest route from Kronosaurus Korner to the Free Fossil Hunting Sites follows Goldring Street (the main street of Richmond) to the North. Outside of the township, the route continues as Goldring Street, becomes the Richmond Woolgar Road. The signed entrances of both sites are present on the Richmond Woolgar Road.

Fossil Hunting Site permits, maps and guides are available at Kronosaurus Korner. Camping is strictly prohibited at Fossil Hunting Sites.
