Just 24k from Winton this attraction is one not to be missed. There are 3 tours included and each was well presented and enjoyed by all ages on our tour. The guides are all very enthusiastic and their information is first class and we were able to not only view but touch the exhibits. Umbrellas were also provided to shade us on the third leg of the tour much needed on a hot day, along with free water bottle refills.

This is well worth the visit. See some amazing discoveries about the age of dinosaurs in Australia. Still an infant museum but is growing daily. Do not miss this.

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!!

Thanks for your review Callan F. I am glad you made the trip out to see the Museum. Unfortunately as summer approaches it is starting to heat up... but that's all part of the Outback experience. Hope to see you back again soon :)

This is the start of a huge venture. So much work has been done and more is planned. The largest collection of Australian dinosaur remains. Over 10 years of work still to be processed. Three areas to tour. Cinema with real dinosaur bones, walking tour of Dinosaur Canyon and the laboratory. New sealed road all the way in. Well done team. This is a must to visit!
