Went with the family (2 toddlers). We were the only ones on the tour. Fantastic tour guide, really friendly.
It is a long drive out to Larks Quarry, but worth it. The road is quite good and the kids enjoyed spotting sheep, cows, kangaroos, goannas and wedge-tailed eagles along the way. The foyer of this attraction is interactive and interesting. As we visited in 'off season' our tour group was small which was fantastic. Our guide, Gary, made the... More
Its hard to believe but there they are. The seven large footprints of the carnivore dinosaur, tramping down the smaller herbivore dinosaurs. It is estimated to be over 3000 small prints, some the size of chickens up to the size of an emu, all obviously blocked from escaping the 'big boy'. The prints are well protected in a roofed area...

It's a drive of about 1.5 hours on sealed then unsealed sections with 5 km sealed sections for passing intermittently. The drive is well worth it for the interactive foyer area, 1.3 or 5km spinefex walks and then the tour inside to see and hear about the trackways. Our boys aged 4 and 6 were welcomed and asked lots of... More
It was hard to believe that you were actually looking at real dinosaur footprints. It is a long time in one spot while the tour guide talks which can be hard for really little kids but otherwise just sit back and listen to the guide tell his stories he really loves his dinosaurs.
We enjoyed our Matilda tour greatly. It was well organised and our guide was very informative along the way. We had an excellent morning tea and then went into the trackways where we had a fascinating talk by the curator. We did the short walk around the site before returning back to the minibus. A really excellent and interesting morning
To see these real dinosaur footprints and to hear the story of why these footprints may have come about is so different to seeing the models in Brisbane. The guide Bill has been there for a few years and is very knowledgeable about the area. It is 110k each way from Winton along a mostly dusty track, but well worth... More
Even though some of the drive was on gravel, it was a good road. The facility is excellent in its interpretation. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and passionate about dinosaurs. To think these are the only stampede footprints in the world is amazing. We didn't do the walk as it was too hot, and our friends are not walkers,... More
Worth the drive put there, but it's half on gravel, once out there we took a short walk then was shown the footprints in the stampede. Looked at all the fossils that they have collected and enjoyed the history
Sightseeing middle of nowhere. I drove past why I visited it but just to drive to see this is worthless. To see the footprints you have to take a tour but the old fellow, the tour guide is boring.
