Australian Dinosaur Story
Australia has a unique dinosaur story to tell. During the Mesozoic Era,
or Age of Dinosaurs, Australia was home to a fascinating and distinctive
range of dinosaur species.
The Australian Dinosaur Story web site has been developed to help students
and teachers discover more about the exciting creatures that inhabited
the Australian landscape 180 to 65 million years ago as well as the environment
that supported them.
Designed for easy navigation, the site includes a dedicated teachers'
section with detailed lesson plans and activities, and a fantastic interactive
student section with 3D dinosaur animations where three of Australia's
extraordinary dinosaurs are brought to life. There is also an interactive
student crossword and a quiz where you can test your new found knowledge
of Australian dinosaurs after reading about the formation of the Australian
continent, the environment in which dinosaurs lived, Australian dinosaurs
and the Lark Quarry dinosaur trackways, recently included in the new National
Heritage List for its outstanding heritage values.
