Explore the unique characteristics of Australian marsupial megafauna.

Journey back to a time when giants roamed our land. Follow the tracks of a Diprotodon, examine ancient kangaroo skulls and pit your strength against the bite of the Thylacoleo, Australia’s marsupial lion.

This fun, family activity examines unique features of the amazing marsupial giants that inhabited Australia during the Pleistocene era, one hundred thousand years ago.
