Australian Age of Dinosaurs

Lot 1 Dinosaur Drive (turn off Landsborough Highway) , Winton, QLD 4735

Description

The Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum of Natural History is home to the world's largest collection of Australian dinosaur fossils. A working dinosaur museum with the most productive Fossil Preparation Laboratory in the Southern Hemisphere, it's located on 1,800 hectares of spectacular mesa plateau with vast scenery, wildlife and walking trails.

At the museum you'll see and hear about their exciting finds of unique dinosaurs that lived 100 million years ago, including gigantic sauropods and "Banjo", Australia's greatest carnivorous dinosaur. In 2017 the Museum introduced Dinosaur Canyon to the world. The new attraction consists of five outdoor galleries featuring life-sized bronze dinosaurs. Board the Noble Express shuttle and prepare yourself for the adventure of a lifetime!

Tours are conducted hourly through the Laboratory, Collection Room and Dinosaur Canyon starting at 9 am daily. The last full tour for the day leaves a 2pm. Half tours are available thereafter. The entire tour takes three hours.

Please aim to arrive 15 minutes before your tour start time so that you have time to purchase your tickets and to enjoy a cold or hot drink at the Cretaceous Cafe before your tour.
