The Fossil Preparation Laboratory was good as was the Collection Room. But the Dinosaur Canyon was excellent. It really brought the whole topic alive. The tour guides are really knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the topic.

Easy drive from Winton, spectacular views and excellent guided tours through their Lab, Collection centre and guided walk. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff/guides and a good cafe. Absolutely worth a visit and a donation to keep their terrific work going.

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.
