If you are wanting T-Rex & stegosaurus - they are not here. They are not Australian. You will find Banjo & Matilda though - I wouldn't want to have met Banjo in his day. :)
We arrived at AAOD not sure what to expect. We were cynical to say the least. We thought there'd be some little shop with dodgy toys and bad looking animated dinosaurs. We were SO IMPRESSED.
The moment we drove up the road to the jump-up we were interested. WHAT A VIEW.
To see the staff actually working in the lab on unearthing the bones from the rock was amazing. Those guys have patience. Our Lab guide Sierra was knowledgeable and not afraid to answer questions.
We then went to the collection room and onto dinosaur canyon. The models in the canyon and cleverly thought out. We were two adults and two teens. Who would have thought the rubbings in the canyon would be so exciting??
The gift shop had a great range of products about Australian Dinosaurs and the cafe had a large range of food and drinks. The recommended 3 hours gave us time to enjoy the walking tracks and not feel like we would miss any of our tours.
This exhibit is in Western Qld that means you will need a hat and water. Dress for the weather and you'll have a great day.
We can't wait to see the planned developments come to fruition and possibly some comparison between our Aussie Dinosaurs and the dinos we all think we know (trex etc)
