Dinosaurs and digging

Great herds of dinosaurs once ruled the interior of Queensland in the murky depths of prehistory. You too can follow in the footsteps of dinosaurs if you know the right spots. Or you can try your hand at fossicking and crown yourself with treasures. Whichever direction you choose, you can unearth the beauties of nature in Outback Queensland.

Australia’s dinosaur trail

Walk where the big fellas walked on Australia’s dinosaur trail, through the towns of Richmond, Hughenden and Winton. Be transported back 120 million years at Kronosaurus Korner in Richmond, when Queensland was covered by an inland sea and underwater giants ruled its interior. Prepare a real dinosaur bone in a lab at The Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum or book to take part in a real dinosaur dig in Winton. Visit the Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways near Winton, where you can see the dinosaur footprints which inspired the stampede in Stephen Spielberg's movie "Jurassic Park".

Dinosaur museums

Head to the channel country where you’ll discover one of Queensland’s largest dinosaurs at the Eromanga Natural History Museum and prepare a real dinosaur bone in a lab. Head to Boulia Stonehouse Museum, the home of the min min light and you'll find Plesiosaurus fossils from Australia's ancient inland sea.

National parks with fossils

Stop at Porcupine Gorge National Park where you can see layers of rock formations, 500 million years old, in this deep gorge system known as the Australia's 'Little Grand Canyon'. Discover million-year old fossils embedded in limestone at Boodjamulla National Park and Riversleigh Fossil Sites.
