Crystal Kingdom Mineral Museum and Crystal Shop, Coonabarabran
The Crystal Kingdom Mineral Museum and the Crystal Shop was established in 1974 and was the first collection in Australia to display minerals and fossils from one local area.
There is a free history exhibit open to the public to view, including some of the world’s rarest and most colourful zeolite crystals and rare fossils that were found within a 100km radius of Coonabarabran.
My kids loved looking at all the interesting gems and crystals in the shop, a souvenir from of our visit was hard to resist.
There are toilets inside if you have been travelling in the car for a long journey, our family thoroughly enjoyed the stop on our road trip. You can’t miss the huge Dinosaur out the front, right on the Newell Highway.
