Australian Museum Diprotodon Exhibition

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Australian Museum Diprotodon Exhibition is housed at the Coonabarabran Visitor Information Centre, conveniently located on the Newell Highway at the southern end of town.

The exhibition displays the skeleton and skull of a Diprotodon, the largest marsupial ever to have lived. It is often likened to a giant-sized wombat. The remains of the Diprotodon were found in the creek bed of Cox’s Creek near Tambar Springs in 1979. The exhibition also provides information on another megafauna that were believed to have existed at around the same time.

Free guided tours of the display are available for groups with advance notice. Please contact the Coonabarabran Visitor Information Centre for more information.

There is also an area located in the Museum which showcases artwork from local artists, as well as the Aboriginal Keeping Place.
