We had an amazing tour...very informative and the kids loved the booklet that they received. All aspects of the tour were great...I particularly loved chatting to the volunteers who were cleaning up the ancient bones.

This display is excellent. The dinosaurs are so lifelike and the guided tour was very informative. Amazing to see the amount of fossils that have been unearthed around Winton.

Thanks for your review Callan F. I am glad you made the trip out to see the Museum. Unfortunately as summer approaches it is starting to heat up... but that's all part of the Outback experience. Hope to see you back again soon :)

Hi, If you want to find more about the Age of Dinosaurs from Indonesia then visit their website. Google: Australian Age of Dinosaurs. Better still come to Queensland and see it at first hand. Best wishes.
