The Centre is a “must see” for every visitor travelling Australia’s Dinosaur Trail. “Australia’s most exciting fossil display” is primarily dedicated to displaying marine reptiles.
Although 500km from the ocean today Richmond was once the heart of the Ancient Inland Sea. One hundred million years later, scores of marine fossils have been unearthed in the surrounding rugged landscape. Kids will love Krono Kids Club, so why not take the experience home with you.

40km from Richmond, along the Croydon Road, Cambridge Crossing is an intersection of road with the Stawell River. To the left and just before this crossing, are the ruins that remind us of the history attached to the Cambridge Downs homestead.
Richmond Pioneer Cemetery is located off the Flinders Highway on the western side of town, immediately after crossing the railway line. The Richmond Pioneer Cemetery displays inscriptions dating from 1886 to 1921. Unfortunately, only about 30 or so headstones remain from around 300 burials. In some cases the broken segments have been reassembled and laid flat, in others they have been repaired and remounted.
