Follow in the footsteps of the prehistoric creatures that once roamed this ancient land. Australia's Dinosaur Trail encompasses the towns of Winton, Hughenden and Richmond which all have their own unique dinosaur stories to tell. A journey along the Dinosaur Trail offers visitors a range of unique experiences not available anywhere else in the world, let alone Australia.

In Winton visit Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways which is set in an amazing landscape of red earth, Spinifex and jump-up country. See the dinosaur footprints which inspired the dinosaur stampede in Stephen Spielberg's movie 'Jurassic Park'. Head to the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum to see the world's largest collection of Australian Dinosaur fossils.

In Hughenden, meet Hughie a skeletal Muttaburrasaurus at The Flinders Discovery Centre. Travel north from Hughenden to Porcupine Gorge National Park to see 500 million years of layers of rock formations in this deep gorge system, known as Australia's 'Little Grand Canyon'.

In Richmond, visit Kronosaurus Korner which is primarily dedicated to displaying marine reptiles. However, Kronosaurus Korner is also home to Australia's best-preserved dinosaur skeleton.
