Want a taste of what it’s like to dig for fossils? Then the half day dig is the tour for you!
May to October – 7 days a week
Morning tour: 8:30 am – 12:30 pm
Afternoon tour: 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Participants should be 10 years of age or over (under 18 requires adult accompaniment)
Note: Fossil collection requires a degree of patience and care so parents may be expected to assist younger participants.
An Indoor Program is in place to offer a suitable program alternative if rain disrupts our opportunity to offer the Fossil Dig Adventure Tours.
The program begins with a Guided V.I.P. Tour of the museum. The program also includes an introduction to fossil collecting techniques, identification and the significance of fossils.
Participants will spend the duration of the program with a museum guide participating in the activities that palaeontologists do during the winter months (or rainy summer days).
A rain day discount will be offered when this program is pursued as an alternative to booked Fossil Dig Adventure Tours. Keep your booking and enjoy this indoor alternative!
Note: Circumstances beyond our control may be cause for cancellation of the Palaeo Tour. Please call ahead if you are unsure about current conditions. We’ll try to re-book your tour at a later time.
