farrago goes outback
The Eromanga Natural History Museum is in Eromanga, which is nestled in the Australian Outback. Famous of being Australia’s furthest town from the sea, Eromanga is located 1082kms from the Sunshine Coast.
The museum is home to Australia’s largest dinosaur (98 million years old) and some of the world’s largest megafauna thought to be about 50,000 – 100,00 years old.
Eromanga Natural History Museum is an education and tourism development and was founded by the Outback Gondwana Foundation Ltd, a not-for-profit organisation created to help fundraise and oversee the collection of processing and storing the fossils.
Stage 1 of the museum commenced in 2014, which was built to process, house, and showcase these fossils to the world and bring opportunities to the outback.
Stage 2 is about to commence, and Farrago has been engaged by New State Builders to complete the joinery package for the museum.
We have completed our fair share of commercial fitouts and joinery packages, but never for a 98 million-year-old dinosaur. This one should be interesting, and we look forward to working with New State Builders to complete the works.
