Hi Peter, the museum can do identifications of specimens. Please see our identifications page for information on how to go about it.

Hi Scott - there's a location near Mornington called Fossil Beach which, as the name suggests, is relatively rich with marine invertebrate fossils (mostly mollusc shells, corals and bryozoans), however there are some important points to considers when undertaking fossil surveying, our Information Sheets on Fossil Collecting Locations and Methods cover these.

Hi I was wondering if there are any places in Melbourne where dinosaur bones can be found. And I also wish to know if there are any known meteor impact sites in Melbourne.
