What's On


55 Million Years Ago

55 Million Years Ago is a multidimensional visitor experience including an interactive Fossil Museum, Art Gallery, Fossil Gift Shop, Visitor Information Centre and Workshop Area surrounding a central Ancient Garden. The museum is unique as the land surrounding Murgon is the only area in Australia to date, that contains fossils of mammals from between 70 and 25 million years ago – bridging a large gap in the fossil record that had puzzled palaeontologists for decades and giving the attraction it's unusual name. It's the perfect stop for travellers on their way to somewhere else to drop in and discover Murgon's secrets - ancient and everlasting.
