Australian Museum Diprotodon Exhibition

The Australian Museum Diprotodon Exhibition is housed at the Coonabarabran Visitor Information Centre, 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 other mega fauna 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 call the Coonabarabran Visitor Information Centre for more information.

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