Journey through the fascinating evolution of Central Australia from the big bang to ancient rocks containing the earliest traces of life and evidence of a great inland sea. Follow the development of the landscape and local mega-fauna to the more familiar mammals and insects found today.
The museum features a replica of a local paleontological dig, an ancient waterhole with some surprising mega-fauna including a giant freshwater crocodile and the largest bird that ever lived, Dromornis Stirtoni, dated at eight million years.
