Kudos to the guide who handled the group of over 60 with no problem, he explained very well. A must see when in the area, take your own food, there's nothing in the vicinity. We also enjoyed the...

We drove ourselves, the dirt road section was a bit rough but well worth it. The scenery is just breath taking and the meuseum was great. The tour guides were interesting and facilities were of a high standard for their remote location. I highly recommend a walk around the jump ups as the scenery is spectacular. Highly recommend for families... More

As part of our winter travels in outback Queensland we were really disappointed to find on our arrival in Winton that the Lark Quarry ..... walking with dinosaurs was in fact closed. This was indeed a set back as we were so looking forward to the experience and infact it was the top of the list of places to visit.... More

very interesting place with lots of fossils and the tracks themselves are amazing to think that dinosaurs once walked here. Very knowledgeable staff who tell how the formation of the tracks was a one in a million coincidence of just the right elements coming together.

The website stated it would be reopening in April, however upon inquiring at the the tourist information counter, we were advised it is still closed. Many people come to Winton just to see this area, and it was very disappointing to find it closed. PLEASE update the website information so other people can make informed decisions when planning their visit.

Like the Waltzing Matilda Centre it's a few years since we visited this site. The buildings were being finished but the walkways were in place. We found it very interesting and so did our son as he was at that stage of being interested in dinosaurs. We had a wonderful guide who knew about the site, could answer our questions... More

We visited the Lark Quarry Trackways whilst on the Dinosaur Trail. I personally was really loking forward to seeing this and I can say I was not dissapointed. It was really amazing and thought-provoking to stand and gaze at over 3000 dinosaur footprints! Our guide Bill was very informative and knowlegable. The drive from Winton is 110km each way, and...

I visited outside the main tourist season, I mention this because heat was a factor & having arrived early due to the trip taking way less time than anticipated there was not much do except sit in the car with the aircon going full blast. The story told on the displays outside the hall is very interesting unfortunately it is... More

While there are other dinosaur footprint sites to visit in the world there is only one stampede site and this is it. Until recently it wasn't thought that there were many large dinosaurs that left any traces in Australia - not any more. Take food and water - the trip will take about 1/12 hours in a normal sedan or... More

We made the trek at the end of the tourist season, the road in was a bit to be desired. A 4WD is recommended. Take plenty of water and something to eat as you can not purchase anything there. Looking at the foot prints and hearing the story behind it is interesting.
