Dinosaur Discovery at The Caves

Learn about dinosaurs that roamed the Bass Coast area and join the hunt for dinosaur fossils. See the dinosaur footprint.

This session is presented by an Education Officer and palaeontologist from Bunurong Coast Education who has been involved in the Dinosaur Dreaming dig. You will see fault lines from ancient earthquakes and petrified trees from the age of the dinosaurs, followed by rock breaking to possibly find a fossil yourself.

Meet at the Bunurong Environment Centre at the corner of Ramsey Blvd and The Esplanade in Inverloch. Following an introduction to the activity and a safety briefing the group will go to The Caves on the Cape Paterson-Inverloch Rd about six kilometres away. Participants will need their own transport. Warm clothing will be needed in cooler weather and sun protection should be worn.

After visiting the dig site, rock breaking is conducted at the Wallace Avenue Community Park at the east end of Wallace Avenue, Inverloch (-38.62872 S, 145.73261 E). Rock breaking hammers supplied or BYO.
