The 115 km drive out to Lark Quarry is worth the time. The road is good and the scenery in interesting. The display is fascinating and the guide was very personable, knowledgeable and passionate about the display.

This place is spectacular. Arrive early, do the 1km walk (stunning scenery - easy, did it in thongs but recommend runners) or smaller loop if little kids and oldies. Amazing guide brought stampede to life - the archeology and the story of this world heritage...More

Jamie gave us a preparatory talk about what we were to see. He then took us into the covered area where the dinosaur footprints were viewed. This is the only known dinosaur stampede in the world!

A visit to Lark Quarry is an education in Australia's past. To stand and look at those footprints frozen in time is sort of surreal. To hear the story as to how they were found and what science has discovered since and what science still...More
