Drop into our visitors centre and meet our giant Diprotodon. He was found near Tambar Springs in 1979 and is thought to be over 33 000 years old!
The exhibition is free and is open to the public 7 days from 9am—5pm.
There is interpretive information in the exhibition and guided tours are available for groups with advance notice.
Also visit our new Aboriginal Keeping Place with lots of Artefacts on display and Art which has been done by local Artists.
Call 1800 242 881 to book for a guided tour for the Diprotodon exhibit.
Discover the Aboriginal Dreaming Story of “The Morning Star and his Sons”, “Yowie, the Spirit of Death, and the Southern Cross” and “The Seven Emu Sisters” in the exhibition area of the Coonabarabran Visitor Information Centre.
The stories recount the creation of three constellations: The Morning Star, Orion and the Southern Cross.
Before you begin reading the stories, try pronouncing some Gamilaraay words linked with astronomy to get you started…
