150 million years before the dinosaurs roamed the earth almost all backboned animals lived in the water. This was the Devonian Period or the Age Of Fishes. A chance find in 1956, followed by a major excavation in 1993 uncovered a remarkable fossil site. The site contained thousands of bizarre, long extinct fishes encased in bony armour, some with lungs and huge predators with crocodile like jaws.Today the most important treasures are on display. This unique “window in time” allows visitors to study what happened. The fossils are supplemented by aquarium displays, permanent exhibitions, gift shop, time-walk, sculpture garden, picnic area, giant games board and children’s fossil digs.The Museum is fully accessible inside and outside and boasts large print brochures, electric doors, hearing loop, ramps, bathrooms and accessible picnic table.Groups are welcome to bring their own morning or afternoon teas and lunch. The picnic ground is available along with a free electric BBQ. Alternatively the volunteers will cater for your group with a country style home baked morning tea and/or home cooked lunch. Groups bookings are essential.
