It is a small city in Australia's Queensland Province. It is the capital of the region called 'Richmond Shire'. It is located on the banks of the Flinders River, the longest river of the Queensland Province, in the north-east of the country. Richmond, which became popular recently with paleontological excavations and findings, is the focus of local and foreign tourists thanks to the Kronosaurus Corner Fossil Museum, the Fossil Festival and the 'Dinosaur Traces Territory of Australia region.
The first name of the city, the 'Wyangarie Shire', was changed by the city council on July 31, 1954 and has taken its present name. The Kronosaurus Corner Fossil Museum was established on May 1, 1999 for the purpose of keeping, searching, preserving and displaying local and regional fossils. The museum also aims to inform the local people and visitors about the paleontological issues. Fossil exploration and excavation tours are organized by Kronosaurus Korner in the 'Dinosaur Traces Territory of Australia', located in the geographical triangle of Richmond, Hughenden and Winton.
Winning the title of 'Australia's most regular little town', Richmond has developed in sheep and cattle breeding; but the local tourism sector has been on fire in recent years with the contribution of paleontological exhibitions and events.
