Riversleigh Fossil Centre information
Coastal Queenslanders will tell you there's only one reason to make the 1200km plus trek to Mt Isa, and it is to visit the Australian tourism award–winning Outback at Isa . Ancient history comes alive at this museum, which is a one-stop educational stop for Queensland's outback history, from pioneering to mining to local cultures. The fascinating Riversleigh Fossil Centre is also here. It features a re-creation of Australia's prehistoric fauna, and actual fossils. There's a good-value, two-day Discovery Tour Pass , which combines all the attractions.
