“A worthwhile experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

This was a fascinating experience to see the ancient dinosaur tracks and learning the pre history of this area. It was worth dirt road trip to be able to experience this relatively recent discovery

“Incredible place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

First visited this site in 1995, since when it has been completely upgraded with a new fully-enclosing building with interpretation centre. We had a great guide in the form of Bill, who told us about the fossils he's found and the geography of the area before taking us in to see the trackways. You stand on a wooden walkway above one side of the site from where you can see almost the whole excavated area. It is well lit from a low angle so you can easily see all the footprints. Bill explained several theories about what the dinosaurs may have been doing to form the tracks that we see today.

This is a world-class site and well worth the hour-long drive out, particularly now that most of the access road is paved. Absolutely fascinating, and humbling to think about how much history this land holds.

“Absolutely Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

This would be my number one attraction in Winton area. It is 110km drive from Winton but despite the fact that it is a gravel road it is an easy drive. The guide has plenty of stories to tell, and you will be amazed with the quality of the footprint fossils. Don't miss it.

“A moment in time preserved for us..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Early start 6.30 am from Longreach so that we could make it for the first tour at 10am. The view was diverse from the open downs to the mountain (jump-up) views, Enjoying the great outdoors. The guided tour inside the temperature controlled building was thought provoking and emotional. Footprints from the past..Wonderful .
