About site

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.
