The Kronosaurus Korner complex is in the heart of Richmond, a town of 750 people in a shire of 1200 in Outback Queensland. It is on the banks of the Flinders River, one of the longest rivers in Queensland.
In 2001 Richmond won the title of Australia's Tidy Town.
Today, Richmond, half-way between Townsville and Mt Isa, is recognised as being one of the most beautiful little towns in Queensland and a town that has always taken pride in its appearance. Richmond has always been recognised as one of the most attractive outback towns in Australia
Streets are lined with striking native garden beds, parks and recreation areas and these are always neat, well kept and green. The town has the social and economic facilities and amenities equal to much larger towns.
Richmond has a council that is extremely pro-active in the region's development and a council that has taken the lead in helping make the town a better place in which to live.
The town's accessibility is mainly east-west, by road along the Overlander's Way (Flinders Highway) and by rail along the Great Northern Railway. North-south linkages, respectively, are the Richmond to Croydon and Richmond to Winton roads.
The 26,936 sq km Richmond shire has boundaries with Flinders, Croydon, Etheridge, Winton and McKinlay shires.
