Saturday 24th July is Capricorn Caves’ Fossil Open Day

Come along and help palaeontologists discover the fossils of creatures that roamed Rockhampton over half a million years ago.

Palaeontologists are studying the bones and teeth of these extinct species, including giant beasts called megafauna, to piece together the fossil history of The Caves region. 

You can enjoy a range of activities!


  • Unearth real fossils of extinct Australian animals

  • Meet palaeontologists from the Queensland Museum

  • Arts and Crafts and rides for the family

  • Displays and stalls from a range of community groups

Come along to this event with only a gold coin donation going directly to The Caves Rural fire Brigade
