Queensland Museum & Sciencentre information
Queensland’s history is given the once-over here, with interesting exhibits including a skeleton of the state’s own dinosaur Muttaburrasaurus (aka ‘Mutt’), and the Avian Cirrus , the tiny plane in which Queenslander Bert Hinkler made the first England-to-Australia solo flight in 1928. Have a snack to a whale soundtrack in the outdoor ‘Whale Mall’.
Also here is the Sciencentre, an educational fun house with over 100 hands-on, interactive exhibits that delve into life science and technology. Expect long queues during school holidays.
