Group prepares nation’s largest dinosaur fossil collection

An outback Queensland group is preparing the largest collection of dinosaur-age fossils ever gathered in Australia.

The Australian Age of Dinosaurs at Winton in the central west says it is employing two workers and over the past two years scores of volunteers have been helping to prepare fossils at its dinosaur laboratory.

The group is proposing a multi-million dollar dinosaur and natural history museum to showcase the finds.

Spokesman David Elliott says the massive collection is only the tip of the iceberg because the region is rich with ancient bones.

“We’ve got new species of dinosaurs and they are studying those now,” he said.

“Of course one day – it’s not all that long away – we will be able to release those animals and we’ll know exactly what they are and what their relevance is to other dinosaurs around the world.

“This is going to be big news not just for western Queensland, but for Australia.”
