The drive from Winton to the Lake Quarry Dinosaurs Trackways is beautiful. Once at the Trackways...you are transported to a time before man. it was truly AWESOME. You are standing less than a meter from footprints that were made over 95million years ago. You are looking at one of the only recorded stampedes of the era. Seriously a must visit!!!

A very long way to go and see what could be dinosaur prints or maybe large bird footprints. We were there to early for the afternoon session and the guide told us to go and have a look on our own with no explanation. The best part was the country side on the way out and back to this remote... More

Lark Quarry is one of Winton's "must see" attractions as it is totally captivating to think of what occurred there 95 million years ago. As others have mentioned though there are very few facilities apart from toilets. Bring your own everything - food, water, books (if you have to wait). The only access times are 10 AM, 12 noon and...

I have given Lark Quarry a 3 out of 5 rating, so I must qualify this by saying that if you are travelling to Winton with an interest in dinosaurs, you absolutely MUST visit Lark Quarry. The 95 million-year-old record of a dinosaur stampede is spectacular, and literally unique in the world. It is 5 / 5. Unfortunately, the exhibit... More

This was very good but thew only downfall was with a large group the commentary was long, boring and uninspiring especially for the kids.

I just couldn't get over the fact that we were look at 90 million year old footprints of the world's only known dinosaur stampede! Australia's tyrannosauropus crept up on 150 smaller dinosaurs causing them to scatter every which way with the creeping dinosaur's footprints and the mayhem that followed still so clearly visible 90 million years later. Well worth the... More

Unique, definitely worth a visit. However the road is rocky and rough in places. The 700m spinifex circuit is also worth a look.

I loved seeing the dinosaur stampede but it was a long way to get there and that is all there is there, The only other facility there is the toilets - no café, no nothing

The talk and display of the footprints made dinosaurs seem real. There were activities for the children and displays in the foyer. The walks around the complex were also interesting

Before going to Lark Quarry I had my doubts about visting another collection of dinosaur bones. I was totally amazed by this attraction and loved the scenery on the way out. There is a big difference between looking at bones and actually being on the spot looking at the dinosaur's footprints. This is an excellent facility and our guide was... More
