Project DIG | Meet the Megafauna

Who were the supersized creatures that roamed tropical northern Australia 40,000 years ago and what did they look like? Discover extinct and living megafauna species unearthed in tropical northern Australia including a 6 metre long lizard, a 2.5 tonne wombat-like plant eater and a marsupial 'lion'.

This work was made possible by a partnership between Queensland Museum and BHP. For more information visit
