An Australian Age of Dinosaurs Experience
In 2015 Winton Shire Council invited the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum of Natural History to take over the operation of public guided tours at Dinosaur Stampede National Monument. This joint initative, implemented in April 2016, provides visitors with a broader understanding of unique Australian dinosaurs and the world they inhabited.
Dinosaur Stampede Roars Back
The Winton Shire Council is pleased to announce The Dinosaur Stampede at Lark Quarry Conservation Park will reopen on Friday the 3rd July 2015. The Council has completed a major refurbishment of the facility.
The refurbishment will deliver an enhanced visitor experience. An extended viewing platform extending toward the trackways will enable visitors to fully appreciate the tracks. Complementing the enlarged viewing platform is state of the art audio and lighting that will ensure this amazing natural phenomena is highlighted to all who visit the Dinosaur Stampede complex.
Winton Shire Council Mayor Butch Lenton is enthusiastic about the upgrade. “Lark Quarry is a very popular tourist destination and an important element to the Winton landscape. The refurbishment project has significantly enhanced the experience while providing a safer site. Our guides also look forward to welcoming visitors and explaining the story of the dinosaur stampede”.
Winton is acknowledged as the Dinosaur Capital of Australia. The twin attractions of Australian Age of Dinosaurs and the Dinosaur Stampede at Lark Quarry draw tens of thousands of visitors to Winton annually. The upgrade will enhance the visitor experience and is a great win for the region.
