Sea Monsters


Queensland Museum’s geosciences research spans over 4.5 billion years of history—from the study of meteorites from the outer solar system to ancient minerals formed deep in the Earth’s crust, and 1.65 billion years of fossilised lifeforms. 

Our collections, some acquired more than 160 years ago, and our associated research studies define Queensland in time and place. These collections document our unique biodiversity and help us understand Queensland’s changing environment.
