Corfield and Fitzmaurice Building

Winton, Winton Area

Inside the heritage listed Corfield and Fitzmaurice building awaits one of the nation's most comprehensive displays of Australian Dinosaur fossils.

Australian Age of Dinosaurs shows the results of the fossil fever that has gripped Winton since the first bones of 'Elliot' were found on a Winton property. 'Elliot' was a Sauropod and is the largest dinosaur yet found in Australia - believed to be nearly 22 metres long.

The display features the fossilised remnants of an ancient environment with bones from 'Elliot', the massive Sauropod that roamed nearly 100 million years ago on display.

To get a snapshot view of what the world might have been like back then, see the life size diorama of the Dinosaur Stampede, recreating the scene where small dinosaurs fled in terror from a ten metre Carnosaur.

Complementing the dinosaur displays is an exhibition of local opal with mining and gemstone information.

The Corfield and Fitzmaurice Building, once Winton's general store, is a bit of dinosaur itself! As the oldest business in Winton, its own history has been set out in a graphic panelled display. Also within the complex is Combo Crafts, which sells a range of attractive pottery, jewellery, and other craft items.
