Age of reptiles
Dinosaurs lived from about 250 to 65 million years ago, at a time also known as the age of reptiles. This was the Mesozoic era, which included the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods.
Dinosaur fossils are not as common in Australia as some other countries, but there is good evidence it was home to many large and small dinosaurs, which lived in the forest and wetlands.
