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.

It takes about an hour to get to Lark Quarry, but is well worth the time. Make sure you get there in time to do the guided tour. Our guide really made the story of the stampede come to life and his knowledge of the local area and dinosaurs was fantastic. His dry sense of humour really made the presentation... More

Lark Quarry was part of our Extended dinosaur pass of four main attractions within the "Dinosaur Triangle". If you are a lover of dinosaurs and pre-history, then you will want to visit here for the unique experience of viewing a fossilized 95 million year old dinosaur stampede with over 3,300 immortalized footprints found nowhere else on earth. The 110km road... More

We came here with our two boys aged 9 and 8 while travelling the Dino Trail. We are in a hire car and couldn't do the dirt road so did a tour with Matilda Country Tours. Our guide tanya was sheer country hospitality with lots of information about country stations and plants and the area. The road is not great,... More

The tour, facilities are 5 star , but the road into the facility is nothing short of a disaster. While we stayed in the Winton Caravan park, we heard of many that didn't go out to the area because of the dangerous road. Some even talked about driving off the road so they would not be damaged by rocks thrown... More

If near Winton do yourself a favour and take the 110klm each way drive out to see this amazing place. This is the only place on the planet you can see where a large Dinosour caused hundreds of smaller Dinousors to stampeed leaving their footprints imbedded in the creek bed. This is inside a purpose built building and is quite... More

A good drive out, please be aware that the road is mostly dirt and is subject to the prevailing weather. Even when we drove (which was during drought conditions) the wheel ruts and mini dust-ornatos kept our speed down and concentration focussed for our 1.5hr drive. It is a solid drive, with no petrol stations, corner stores and/or food outlets... More
