Age Of Fishes Museum

Home  -  Things to doArts & Culture

Imagine a world ruled by fish! Long before the dinosaurs the mighty rivers of the Central West teamed with bizarre ancient fishes - fish with armour shells, fish with lungs, and huge predators with jaws like crocodiles. Thousands of their fossils were found at Canowindra and give a unique glimpse into the Devonian Period - the 'Age of Fishes'.

The Museum displays many of these beautiful fossils together with live aquarium displays and wonderful recreations of life in the Devonian.

The Age of Fishes Museum offers two permanent exhibitions, an education program, gift shop, accessible facilities, and geological time-walk in the picnic ground and a free barbecue. Bring a picnic or barbecue in the peaceful grounds while the kids play on the giant games board. Entry includes an audio tour or guided tour. Groups are welcome. Please book in advance.
