The Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum of Natural History is a world-class organization and home to the world’s largest collection of Australia’s largest dinosaur fossils and a Star Gallery, about 232 miles (374 km) southeast of Cloncurry, Queensland, Australia. It’s an accredited dark sky sanctuary, located on a large mesa called The Jump-Up, of which the International Dark Sky Association says “light quality measurements taken since 2016, as part of the successful accreditation, had found an exceptional clear dark sky with no light pollution from human activity or urban centers.” Please note that while camping is not available, the museum does accommodate overnight stays for visitors via the on-site Maloney Lodge. For more information please visit online or call 07 4657 0078 between 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Australia Time, Monday through Saturday.
