While severely under resourced, kronosaurus korner absolutely punches above its weight. It's home to some of the best preserved dinosaur remains in the world and the interpretive information via audio guides is excellent. It's been four years since I've visited and it's great to see additions to the collection. This area has such an incredibly significant paleontological history. I'm glad... More

Your visit starts with a short but interesting movie that keeps the kids entertained too. Then it is off to see the very impressive fossil displays. There is also a kids corner with games and activities to keep the young ones entertained when their interest runs out. We were very lucky to talk to Barbara and Gary in the fossil... More

Being from WA we were unaware of this amazing place as I am sure many people are, this should rate as an article on the CHANNEL 7 morning show during their travel around the country and let more people be aware of what exists in this country. A real eye opener and a very nice country town to visit in... More

We were a bit Dinasoured out by the time we reached this place. But we have to say we really enjoyed the whole experience and that included the lovely lattes from the adjoining café. Excellent public toilets outside too. So we were so happy. The specimens are so well set out and complete. The folks who took us around are... More

We were impressed with the fossils on display and found the audio guide to be very informative. The kids, who are 4 and 6 were able to be quite independent and liked using the guides. The video presentation in the theatre was very informative and succinct. The staff in the museum were very friendly and helpful. We ate lunch in... More

Very well set up with plenty of information for both adults and young children. Impressive presentation of material and well worth the modest entry fee. Great place to visit.

I loved this display of fossils, very informative with super friendly staff that went out of their way. I can't believe I had never heard of it before as it was only a drop in on the way to NSW I will definitely be going back to try and find some of my own fossils. Big thank you to the... More

Loads of dinosaur fossils and very informative. I thought the the informative bits that they had you listen to with a handheld device were a bit long so we just read everything. Was a nice couple of hours.

Great to see some dinosaurs. Though we didn't go into the exhibit as it is $20 per adult we had a nice stopover for drinks and a look around the shop.
