Lost Creatures Exhibit
All ASC2014 delegates are invited to visit the newly-opened Lost Creatures exhibition – as discussed in the Business and industry, communities and controversy ASC2014 session (Monday 2 February, 11:15am).
Lost Creatures introduces you to some of Queensland’s long-lost inhabitants, including dinosaurs, giant marine reptiles and megafauna. Meet some of our state’s inhabitants from millions of years ago and marvel at their diversity and immense size. Find out about the challenges they faced at a time of great upheaval and change.
Featuring some of our most significant fossil finds, our famous Muttaburrasaurus reconstruction and new 3D modelling of Queensland dinosaurs, this is a larger than life exhibition you won’t want to miss!
Where? Level 2 of the Queensland Museum. Admission is free.
