Australian Age of Dinosaurs
The Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum of Natural History is a not-for-profit organisation located in Winton, Queensland, and founded by David and Judy Elliott in 2002. The Museum is located on a towering mesa, known as The Jump-Up, and the home to Australia’s first International Dark-Sky Sanctuary.
Over the last two decades the Museum has accumulated the largest collection of Australian dinosaur fossils in the world and holds the holotype specimens of Diamantinasaurus matildae (Matilda), Savannasaurus elliottorum (Wade), Australovenator wintonensis (Banjo – Australia’s most complete theropod skeleton) and Ferrodraco lentoni (Butch – the first pterosaur to be named from the Winton Formation).
Today visitors can take guided tours of the Fossil Preparation Laboratory, Reception Centre and the March of the Titanosaurs exhibition (a 54-metre-long sauropod tracksite) at Dinosaur Canyon. Future plans include the construction of Australia’s premier natural history museum.
