 After exploring our Prehistoric World at Kronosaurus Korner, we have the ideal place for you to visit. The fossicking sites are approximately 12 km to the north of Richmond and are easily accessible to all vehicles. 

 

You don't require any digging tools- in fact most people don't have any equipment and still manage to make  wonderful finds. Some of the fossils that are found in the area include belemnites, fish jaws and scales, inoceramus shells and shark teeth.

 

Fossickers are reminded that they are more than welcome to bring their discoveries back to Kronosaurus Korner for identification.
