Driving Directions

Proceed south from Winton on the Winton-Jundah Road to waypoint. At waypoint you will see a tall radio mast. Turn west onto dirt road at this point and continue for about 6km to Conservation Park.

It is 110km from Winton to Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways. This road is suitable for conventional vehicles, with approximately 45km of sealed road, and 65km of unsealed road.

Lark Quarry Conservation Park, the home of Dinosaur Trackways, is situated in Jump Up country, a spectacular Spinifex and red earth landscape eroded from ancient lake and stream beds.
The only way to experience Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways is via a guided tour, for which a fee applies. The tour interprets the Trackways from creation to discovery and display, as well as the surrounding environment and other Cretaceous fossils. Learn about the geological history of the area and how the Trackways were discovered, before proceeding into the Fossil Room to see some of the fossils found locally, from the Cretaceous period – including dinosaur food! Then discover the Trackways for yourself, in the Trackways Viewing Room, where over 3,300 fossilised footprints are on display.

The Spinifex Walk is a self-guided walking circuit around the Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways complex. A lookout offers spectacular views of rolling Mitchell grass downs framed by the characteristic red earth Jump Ups of the Conservation Park, and a recyclable flyer is available, interpreting the local environment. This 500m track takes about 15 – 30 minutes to complete, and a hat and sunscreen are essential!

The Spinifex Walk is in addition to the Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways guided tour and is free.
