Riversleigh Fossil Centre

Main Image
The Riversleigh Fossil Centre at Outback at Isa educates and interprets for visitors the fossils extracted from the nearby Riversleigh Fossil Fields. Now a World Heritage Area, the fossils fields are home to one of the most significant and exciting fossil deposits in the world. 

These finds have been depicted as dioramas and exhibited in an authentic setting to illustrate the unique discoveries in one of the world's richest fossil fields. Unlike many other fossil deposits, the Riversleigh fossils are not just a snapshot in time, but a window on the development of early mammal megafauna over the past 30 million years.

This classifies the Riversleigh Fossil Centre as unique among centres offering 'fossil tourism'. The Riversleigh fossil deposit is the richest and one of the most important fossil fields in Australia.
