Murgon Fossil Museum

Fossil Experience

Step inside and be immersed in an interactive paleontological journey discovering the creatures that roamed the Murgon region between 24 – 70 million years ago. A time when the forests rang with the sound of the first songbirds and the earliest mammals and marsupials shared their home with ancient turtles, crocodiles and creatures that look nothing like they do today.

Fine Art Gallery

The discoveries continue in the Fine Art Gallery.

Exhibitions held throughout the year attract accomplished and emerging Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists utilising a range of different mediums.

The gallery also fosters creativity, artistic excellence, and community engagement through competitions, workshops, and presentations.
