Queensland’s State fossil emblem

A new campaign has been launched by the Department of the Premier and Cabinet to find Queensland’s 10th official emblem — the new State fossil emblem!

In prehistoric times, outback Queensland was alive with marine animals that swam in our ancient inland seas, and creatures that roamed our vast landscapes.

With so many fossils uncovered in our ancient past, we need your help to choose Queensland’s new State fossil emblem!

Find out about the 12 fossils up for nomination. See what they might have looked like, where they roamed or swam, how big they were, and how long ago they lived. Then make your selection and nominate your favourite.

This is an exciting opportunity for Queenslanders of all ages to help choose the 10th official State emblem, which will become part of Queensland’s iconic and historic legacy.
