Megafauna Festival and Lancefield Farmers Market
The 2017 Megafauna Festival in combination with the Lancefield Farmers’ Market will take place on Saturday 25th November.
Background: A large fossil deposit from the Pleistocene epoch was discovered at Lancefield Swamp, containing the remains of many species of extinct megafauna, including: Macropus titan, a giant kangaroo, Diprotodon, a rhinoceros-sized wombat, and Genyornis, a giant flightless bird.
The swamp site is located in the Lancefield Park Recreation Reserve.
Apart from the Farmers’ Market stalls on the plantation in High Street there will also be music, a mega jisaw and Landcare will have a display.
In the Mechanics Hall annex palaeontologists will bring visitors up to date with what’s happening at the Megafauna dig in Lancefield.
