Many of the fossils discoveries are now housed in the award-winning
attraction Kronosaurus Korner and accredited Visitor Information Centre. Kronosaurus Korner
offers visitors a unique experience with their
array of marine fossils, as well as some famous ones
including Minmi, considered to be the best preserved
dinosaur skeleton in Australian. The Richmond Pliosaur is a
complete fossilized marine reptile that has to be seen to be
believed. The museum houses over 200 exhibits.
The centre also includes a Fossil Preparation area, theatrette, guided or
self-paced tours, Cafe, souvenir shop and kids' corner. A map is available to
guide you through Richmond's designated free fossicking sites. Fossil
fossicking is encouraged and this place is a good one to get
the best advice.
Lake Fred Tritton on the eastern entrance to the town boasts
sandy beaches, a boat ramp, free barbeques, amenities, shaded playground
facilities and a water park. Stocked with a variety of fish such as barramundi
and redclaw, Lake Fred Tritton is great for those wanting to cast a line.
Nestled on the banks of Lake Fred Tritton is the Bush Tucker Gardens. Here you
can learn about the plants native to this region, and their traditional
purposes. The garden's waterfall represents the birthplace of Richmond's water
flowing from the basalt country to the white gravel. Gidgee stones and moonrocks
complete the gardens.
