Lark Quarry Conservation Park

Winton, Winton Area

Feel the thrill of standing where dinosaurs once roamed at Lark Quarry Conservation Park.

Here, some 4000 footprints have until recently been known as the world’s only record of a dinosaur ‘stampede’— a herd of small dinosaurs being chased by a large theropod, about 95 million years ago! Findings from a recent study suggest the tracks may have been left by swimming and wading, not running dinosaurs, crossing a river.

This 200 square metre site, which is called Trackways, is protected inside a solar-powered shelter built using ecologically sustainable methods.

Entry to the park and the two walking tracks is free, but access to Lark Quarry’s dinosaur Trackways is by guided tour only and a fee applies. To arrange tours, contact Winton’s Waltzing Matilda Centre. Tours are available at 9.30am, 11.00am, 12.00pm, 1.00pm, 2.00pm and 3.00pm daily.

This landscape was formed over millions of years, as the ancient rocks known as the Winton Formation have been eroded into a striking landscape of jump-up country with flat-topped hills (mesas), gullies, and steep, broken escarpments.The journey to Lark Quarry Conservation park is a rollercoaster ride across the ancient mesas of jump-up country to the Trackways site.
