Did you know there are fossils that are millions of years old, practically on your doorstep, and just waiting to be discovered?

Join us on a bus trip back in time and discover fossils that you can take back home!

First, we’ll travel to Milburn Quarry where you’ll have special fossil fossicking access. We’ll then lunch with 24 million-year-old whale and dolphin fossils at the Milburn Whale and Fossil Lookout. We’ll even stop into Fairfield Quarry on our way home to see some fossils right on our doorstep.

Amadeo, Otago Museum’s science communicator extraordinaire and fossil lover, will be your guide for the day. He’ll share awesome nuggets of information and insights throughout the day and inspire everyone’s inner paleontologist.

What you need to bring:

- Hammer
- Box / container to take your fossils home in
- Mask
- Chisel
- Gloves

Please make sure you wear closed in shoes, dress appropriately for the weather conditions and have adequate food and drink to sustain you for the duration of the field trip.

Please note, recommended for ages 7 years and above, and all attendees under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
