North of Hughenden is the next stop at the Porcupine Gorge National Park. See 500 million years of layers of rock formations in this deep gorge system, known as the Australia's 'Little Grand Canyon'. Next up is the Flinders Discovery Centre in Hughenden. Meet Hughie a skeletal Muttaburrasaurus, surrounded by a large fossil and gem display.

Australian Age of Dinosaurs

The Jump Up Road, Winton QLD 4735

Australian Age of Dinosaurs Inc. (AAODI) was formed at Winton following a public meeting in August 2002.

Since that time we have organised dinosaur digs in western Queensland, primarily in collaboration with the Queensland Museum. This has led to the discovery and recovery of what is now the world's largest collection of Australian dinosaur fossils.

To complement our discovery program (and out of necessity), we have built and operated Australia’s largest fossil preparation facility since July 2006.

To promote our activities we publish an annual journal aimed at the preservation of Australian natural history.

The activities of AAODI and some of its members have received a remarkable level of recognition, attracting substantial Australian and international media attention.

Waltzing Matilda Centre

50 Elderslie Street, Winton QLD 4735

If there is one song that lives in the hearts of all Australians, it is "Waltzing Matilda". Written by "Banjo" Paterson in 1895 near Winton, it has played a significant part in defining the Australian character.

The Waltzing Matilda Centre is the only attraction in the world dedicated to a song. It’s a one-stop tourism shop!  Self-guided tours allow you to experience this multi-award winning attraction at your own pace. Pull up a stump by the Billabong, where the swagman ghost tells his side of the story of Waltzing Matilda. Learn the truth, myth and romance behind Australia's favourite song in the interactive Legends Room. Wander through the outside displays of pioneering railways, trucks, buggies and early station life and equipment.  Explore the fascinating timeline of Winton's history in the Qantilda Museum. Visit the Outback Regional Gallery and Foyer, offering new exhibitions every six to eight weeks. You can also pick up a gift in the Station Store or just relax in the Coolibah Café with free WIFI.

Take a ‘Matilda’s Ghost’ guided tour to discover the truth and legend behind the story of the writing of Australia’s most famous song. Take a journey through time with the ‘Ghost’ of Banjo Paterson or Christina McPherson, who inspired him to write the song.  Your guide will reveal what brought Banjo to Winton, the events that led up to writing the song and the momentous fall-out from the scandal. A humorous, revealing and entertaining hour’s tour will begin with the story of the song as told by the swagman before Banjo or Christina share with you the intimate details of this event that changed their lives forever.

For your convenience an accredited Visitor Information Centre and Westpac In-store Bank is also located inside the Centre.

Corfield and Fitzmaurice Building Logo and Images

Corfield and Fitzmaurice Building

Elderslie Street, Winton QLD 4735

Inside the heritage listed Corfield and Fitzmaurice building awaits one of the nation's most comprehensive displays of Australian Dinosaur fossils. Australian Age of Dinosaurs shows the results of the fossil fever that has gripped Winton since the first bones of 'Elliot' were found on a Winton property. 'Elliot' was a Sauropod and is the largest dinosaur yet found in Australia - believed to be nearly 22 metres long. The display features the fossilized remnants of an ancient environment with bones from 'Elliot', the massive Sauropod that roamed nearly 100 million years ago on display. To get a snapshot view of what the world might have been like back then, see the life size diorama of the Dinosaur Stampede, recreating the scene where small dinosaurs fled in terror from a ten metre Carnosaur. Complementing the dinosaur displays is an exhibition of local opal with mining and gemstone information. The Corfield and Fitzmaurice Building, once Winton's general store, is a bit of dinosaur itself! As the oldest business in Winton, its own history has been set out in a graphic panelled display. Also within the complex is Combo Crafts, which sells a range of attractive pottery, jewellery, and other craft items.

Winton War Memorial Logo and Images

Winton War Memorial

Vindex Street, opposite the Shire Council Offices, Winton QLD 4735

Residents of Winton met at the Shire Hall on Sunday 16 August 1914 to initiate a patriotic committee and to call on volunteers for the war that had been declared two weeks prior. 10 years later, the office of architects H W Atkinson and A H Conrad was calling for tenders for the erection of a granite war memorial in Winton. By March 1926, local stonemason G H Jenkins had completed the structure in granite sourced from his quarry in Gracemere. Plans were in place to truck the completed memorial to a site in the main street opposite the Council Chambers. The highly polished three metre high pedestal bore the names of 518 men and women who served during WWI. A bronze laurel wreath was fixed at the top of each panel. A poem by Rupert Brooke is featured on one side. The memorial cost £1273. Anzac Day 1926 began with a solemn wreath-laying ceremony at the town cemetery on the graves of 16 returned servicemen. The unveiling of the memorial in the afternoon was attended by the whole town, the Shire Chairman and local religious leaders officiating. The memorial remains the focus of ANZAC Day ceremonies in Winton.

Dinosaur Stampede at Lark Quarry Conservation Park Logo and Images

Dinosaur Stampede at Lark Quarry Conservation Park

Winton-Jundah Road, Lark Quarry Conservation Park, Winton QLD 4735

The Dinosaur Stampede at Lark Quarry Conservation Park, where over 3,300 dinosaur tracks mark the site of the only known dinosaur stampede on the planet. In a remarkable piece of scientific detective work, scientists from the Queensland Museum have pieced together a dramatic tale of hunter and hunted from the footprints left behind. About 95 million years ago a herd of over 300 dinosaurs, some as small as chickens (called Coelursaurs) and some about the size of an emus (called Ornithopods) were drinking on the muddy shore of a lake. The herd panicked and started a mad dash to escape when a large meat-eating dinosaur appeared close by. The stampede was recorded in the mud, preserved by the natural environment, and immortalised in stone. Preserved inside a modern building, this amazing Dinosaur Stampede is accessible to everyone at Lark Quarry Conservation Park. The starkly beautiful red earth and spinifex-studded landscape is a dramatic contrast to the moist green world that existed at the time of the dinosaurs.

Lark Quarry Conservation Park

Lark Quarry Access Road, Winton QLD 4735
Feel the thrill of standing where dinosaurs once roamed at Lark Quarry Conservation Park. Here, some 4000 footprints have until recently been known as the world’s only record of a dinosaur ‘stampede’— a herd of small dinosaurs being chased by a large theropod, about 95 million years ago! Findings from a recent study suggest the tracks may have been left by swimming and wading, not running dinosaurs, crossing a river. This 200 square metre site, which is called Trackways, is protected inside a solar-powered shelter built using ecologically sustainable methods. Entry to the park and the two walking tracks is free, but access to Lark Quarry’s dinosaur Trackways is by guided tour only and a fee applies. To arrange tours, contact Winton’s Waltzing Matilda Centre. Tours are available at 9.30am, 11.00am, 12.00pm, 1.00pm, 2.00pm and 3.00pm daily. This landscape was formed over millions of years, as the ancient rocks known as the Winton Formation have been eroded into a striking landscape of jump-up country with flat-topped hills (mesas), gullies, and steep, broken escarpments.The journey to Lark Quarry Conservation park is a rollercoaster ride across the ancient mesas of jump-up country to the Trackways site....

Lark Quarry Conservation Park

-Jundah Road, Winton QLD 4735
Lark Quarry Conservation Park holds the only evidence in the whole world of a dinosaur stampede. The evidence: 3,300 fossilised dinosaur footprints from a time when dinosaurs stomped through lush rainforests and the outback looked very different from the way it is today. These dinosaur tracks inspired the dinosaur stampede scene in Steven Spielberg's movie Jurassic Park. The tracks are protected inside a solar-powered building, constructed using ecologically sustainable methods. Discover the fascinating story of the stampede of 95 million years ago. Entry to the tracks is by guided tour only (a fee applies). Independent visitors can enjoy a short 500 metre walk along the Spinifex circuit, or enjoy a longer 3.5 kilometre return walk along the Jump Up Loop to explore this awe-inspiring landscape known as 'jump up' country....

Winton

50 Elderslie Street, Winton QLD 4735
"Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong..." You'll be forgiven for relentlessly whistling this famous tune while you're in Winton, as it's the very home of Banjo Patterson's 'Waltzing Matilda'. Reputedly inspired by an 1894 shearer's suicide at the nearby Combo Waterhole and first performed in Winton's North Gregory Hotel on 6th April 1895, you can learn all about Banjo and the adopted national anthem at the Waltzing Matilda Centre in Winton. First settled in 1875 and originally called 'Pelican Waterhole', Winton has plenty on offer to keep you busy for at least a day or two. The town is home to Boulder opals that you can view and buy in town and a day trip will take you to Queensland's oldest opal fields at Opalton. Also just out of Winton is Lark Quarry, where 93 million year-old dinosaur fossils will give you a glimpse into prehistoric times. The quirky Winton Music Fence, developed by percussionist and composer Graeme Leak, is free and a fantastic spot to let the kids explore their hidden musical talents. Arno's Wall, a wall surrounding a private residential property in town, is worth a look for its unique construction from all sorts of things including motorbikes, lawn mowers, crockery and historical items. Winton is in the heart of Matilda Country, a diverse region in which vast mitchell grass plains are broken by magnificently coloured gorges, ridges and mesas; what the locals call 'jump-ups'. Visitors to the region will be amazed by the vastness of the plains and the undulating nature of the landscape. There is a wide variety of animal and bird life in the area, generally best seen around dusk and dawn on minor roads and tracks....
