I didn’t have much time to look around this museum as I had a flight to catch at 1 but I Tried my best to look around and photograph the geological exhibits taking in mind that the museum also has a great collection of animals and aboriginal artefacts that I couldn’t take photos of ,, enjoy (:

You are welcome. (:  , just a question are the opalised pieces really hard to get your hands on because I also think they are very beautiful  and if they are not too rare I might consider it (I assume that I can’t afford it though(;   )

My assumption is opalized fossils are not too easy to come by and therefore probably unaffordable when they do show up. I haven't seen many.

Definitely not Hadrosaur. It looks like Meiolania. A really bizarre horned turtle with a spiked tail.

I can confirm this; definitively a Meiolaniid skull.
