The Riversleigh Fossil Discovery Centre in Mount Isa showcases the fossils from the Riversleigh World Heritage Area. Riversleigh is part of the Australian Fossil Mammal Sites and home to one of the most significant fossil deposits worldwide that tells a unique story of the evolution of Australia’s wildlife.

In the newly renovated and upgraded Centre some of Riversleigh’s most unique fossil finds are exhibited with innovative interactive displays. Let the paleontological experts tell you their stories of Riversleigh in the movie theatre or wander through an impressive diorama to see what this ancient world looked like 25 million years ago.

Why not join a guided tour to find out how specimens are sorted, cleaned and the fossils extracted from hard limestone in our Riversleigh fossil laboratory – an experience that is educational and engaging for the entire family. You might even find yourself virtually digging for fossils!
