Informative, excellent guides and friendly staff. They seemed genuinely enthused by what they where doing. A great way to get some idea of the animals that lived in Australia many years ago.

Hi, If you want to find more about the Age of Dinosaurs from Indonesia then visit their website. Google: Australian Age of Dinosaurs. Better still come to Queensland and see it at first hand. Best wishes.
