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.

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
