Did you know that Australia had it’s very own dinosaurs? A dinosaur is basically an ancient reptile, and even though we don’t have huge T-Rex fossils in Australia like you see in a lot of movies, we still do have quite a lot of fossil evidence. 

Australia’s Amazing Dinosaurs contains a plethora of information about our ancient inhabitants, how and where they can be found in our country and heaps of interesting facts. It also tells you how to pronounce the many complicated dinosaur names!
