Palaeontologist Partnerships

Palaeontologists Pat and Tom Rich have kindly agreed to share their expertise with Ecolinc in highlighting significant Bacchus Marsh Megafauna fossil finds. Pat is a resident Palaeontologist at Monash University and Swinburne Institute of Technology.

Ecolinc’s ‘Digging up the Diprotodon’ has been a popular choice for teachers and students in the past. Ecolinc continues to celebrate the local discovery of Diprotodon bones in the Hine’s Claypit in 1973. A refreshed course enables a more hands-on Palaeontology experience for students. So put on your hat, grab your tool belt, and join our dig to discover and identify your own megafauna bones!
