We traveled up from Longreach which is a three hour drive and it was 100% worth it. It was a wonderful experience and the tours were very worth the time AND HEAT!!

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.
