Richmond Airport Queensland

Richmond Airport in Queensland is 2 miles northwest of the town of Richmond. It is operated by the Richmond Shire Council.

Richmond is a small outback town which functions as a service centre to the surrounding pastoral community.

Once part of Australia’s vast Inland Sea, Richmond is best known for its marine fossil discoveries.  Kronosaurus Korner displays fossil finds from the cretaceous-era inland sea, which existed from about 97.5 to 120 million years ago. While at the museum, grab a permit and ask for a map to the free local fossil hunting sites; a chance to find your own fossil.
