The National Wool Museum welcomes some of the most unusual dinosaurs to have ever roamed the planet and they are all from our own backyard.

Meet Cryolophosaurus the Antarctic dinosaur, Megalania the giant lizard and his lunch: Bullockornis the giant flightless bird.

Global environmental crisis. Food shortages. Birds so big they couldn’t fly and one big, mean ol’ nasty komodo dragon-like creature.

Just another day for the Wildlife of Gondwana, where drifting continents affected the evolution of dinosaurs and megafauna from 3.8 billion years ago to the present.

Forget about the dinosaurs that you know – prepare for a whole new breed of beast!

Wildlife of Gondwana is an exhibition where skeletons and fossils meet scientists and artists. Where vivid illustrations by Peter Trusler put muscle and skin on bone to give us a glimpse of how some of the most unusual dinosaurs to have ever roamed the planet lived.

Surrounded by life-like environmental murals, the exhibition features real fossils, skeletons and 20 full-scale skeletal casts, many of which have never been on public display in Australia before.
