Discover prehistoric giants known as Megafauna that roamed the Darling Downs more than 10,000 years ago and see the remains of these huge reptiles and marsupials.
When dinosaurs became extinct 65 million years ago, some fascinating animals did survive — many of them giants. These huge reptiles and marsupials, called 'megafauna', roamed the countryside right here on Queensland’s Darling Downs where their remains have been found at more than 50 sites.
Although they too were doomed to disappear around 10,000 years ago, their remains tell us a lot about what they looked like and how they behaved.
Go back to the Pleistocene epoch on the Downs, from 1.8 million to around 10,000 years ago, and take a look at some remains of these bizarre creatures.
