stonehenge to Jundah
Jundah to Lark Quarry

From Jundah, turn right on the Windorah Road, passing over the Thomson River bridge then travel approximately 12 kilometres to the Jundah-Winton T-intersection. Follow the Jundah-Winton road through red mulga country to the Juno 'Jump Up' and view the wide expanse of open Mitchell grass plains. Pass open downs country with views towards the Quart Pot Range and see the Mount Felix Channel Four Repeater station. Mount Felix is one of nine stations scattered throughout the Barcoo Shire providing a safety communications network for residents and travellers.

Travel across ancient mesas, gullies and broken escarpments to the world's only known dinosaur stampede site at Lark Quarry Conservation Park. The only way to experience Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways is via a guided tour, for which a fee applies. The tour interprets the Trackways from creation to discovery, and tells the story of the drama which unfolded some 95 million years ago when a huge meat-eating Theropod came upon a herd of smaller dinosaurs as they drank at the lake. Learn about the geological history of the area and see up to 3,300 fossilised footprints

Lark Quarry to Winton
Longreach to Lochern National Park

Heading out of Longreach, follow the Longreach-Jundah Road for about 100 kilometres to the Lochern National Park signpost. Turn right and follow this unsealed road for about 40 kilometres to the park boundary at the Thomson River. Lochern has 20 kilometres of Thomson River frontage. The park protects 24,300 hectares of important habitat, with many lagoons and waterholes providing refuge for birds and other wildlife including hooded robins, Major Mitchell's, cockatoos, Hall's Babblers, fairy-wrens, emus and stately brolgas.

Black kites fly overhead and Whistling kites nest and call beside Broadwater Waterhole. Keep an eye out for Red-tailed black-cockatoos flying along the river channels and Budgerigars nesting in the Coolibah trees. The park has no walking tracks but you can wander around the river and waterholes or follow the Lochern Habitat Drive (approximately 40 kilometres return, allow two to four hours).

Canoeing and kayaking in Broadwater Waterhole is a popular activity and fishing in the waterholes is permitted (size and bag limits apply). You can also ride your bicycle along the park's Habitat Drive. Bush camping is permitted at Broadwater Waterhole.

Lochern National Park to Stonehenge

Follow the unsealed road back to the Longreach-Jundah Road and turn right towards Stonehenge. About two kilometres from the Stonehenge turnoff, you can sign the visitor's book - Stonehenge style! This involves writing your town name with stones - a quirky tradition started years ago by the then mailman. Take some time to read through the many town names that can be seen embossed in stone.

You'll also pass XXXX Hill, a scenic vantage point with breathtaking 360-degree views of the Thomson River flood plains and surrounding Johnstone Ranges.

Call into the Stonehenge Visitor Information Centre for great coffee, friendly service, access to Telstra Mobile 3G and free WiFi. Take a stroll to see the Government Tank on the old stock route where drovers watered the travelling stock. A caravan park and free bush campsites are available in Stonehenge.
