I visited here in April with my 13yr old daughter at her request after our travels to the red centre. I was not particularly interested in dinosaurs but figured it would be educational, hehe. Well it certainly was educational! And interesting, and fun, and just...More

We will definitely be back as we only had a short stop just before closing time. it is great facility but signage in Winton was confusing lead to us not coming straight out there on trip towards Longreach.

Good surface on road, took about 25 minutes from Winton, very informative and most enjoyable, would not recommend visit in the hot months

It's a great distance to come but you get to touch an actual 95 million year old bone and get an idea of the intense work that goes into bringing these bones to 'life'.

Had a great day out learning about the dinosaurs, excavation process and the surrounding area. All 3 guides we had were very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit (even if your not a dinosaur fanatic).

The office opening hours between 8:00 and 17:00, we arrived there by 16:30, had been informed "sorry, you can not see dinosaurs bone because you are late", then basically they want you to pay tour money for it , you can not self-tour yourself. We...More

After a bit of a drive on partially sealed road, but well worth the efforts. lots of information, including watching the volunteers in action in the lab, the quarry section is a must putting the landscape into perspective. Children would really enjoy this, as most...More

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.
