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

It's a 110 km drive out to this attraction from Winton with half on a gravel track so it's a serious commitment to visit and therefore while the site of preserved dinosaur footprints and the stampede story is interesting there really isn't much to see and therefore it's a little disappointing. A trip to the Australian Age of Dinosaurs is... More

A truly amazing experience. To be standing near where a huge dinosaur attacked smaller bird-like dinosaurs, leaving their tracks for people of the future to see is truly awe-inspiring. People of all ages should put this site on their bucket list! My friend and I have mobility issues (I use a walker and my friend uses a walking stick) and... More

We visited this as part of our Aussie Outback Legendary Longreach and Winton tour; and it was well worth the trip out from Winton. The amazing set of circumstances as to how they were discovered, developed and preserved was fantastic in itself. To stare at the giant footprints of a carnivorous dinosaur and the myriad of tiny beasties seeking to... More

If your really into dinosaurs, or want to experience the whole dinosaur track attractions you will enjoy it if not pass and do something else..the drive out took us 1 hour even though others will take longer if not use to driving on dirt road. Its not that bad of a road, we have been on worse but as i... More

Our reason for driving 3,000 Kms from South Australia to Winton, Qld was to visit this exhibit and it most certainly did not disappoint. The area had had rain the day before our planned trip to the Trackways and as we were unsure of the road, having heard varying reports on it, we decided to join the tour run by... More

Excellent and well worth the 110km drive from Winton. The commentary by the guide, Bill, was first rate and very informative. The story painted a picture of the Dinosaur rush that had happened at this location many millions of years and the efforts to preserve that history. Smithy

This is a unique experience and worthwhile, even if the road to get there is long and rough. Probably not worth the drive if you're not into all things dinosaurs and/or archaeology - luckily I am!

Great short walk will take you up and over the landscape of ancient ground. The story well unfold as you are told the story of small foot prints mingled with large. Just seeing evidence of long ago creatures is awesome. The drive out to the quarry is part of the adventure.
