Thunderbird Park – www.thunderbirdpark.com offers Thunderegg Fossicking where your little palaeontologist can choose a pick and bucket and go for gold digging up the mine site in search for treasures. Once you have acquired your Souvenir Miner’s Permit you can fill your bucket to the brim and take it all home too!

The Thunderegg’s are real! They haven’t been created by the site just for your palaeontologist’s pleasure. They have been created back when volcanoes where still bubbling and erupting here in Australia. Thunderegg’s were once hollow bubbles which were created when minerals crystallised around a steam bubble in cooling lava. The process often left minute cracks which leached silica-rich minerals inside, filling them with quartz, agate, amethyst, jasper and opalite. You’ll be able to cut open your eggs to see the inner beauty with the use of the custom-made diamond edged saw blade.
