  • Visit in winter. Too hot other times of year. Wonderful place. Some shade sails over dinosaur walk would be fantastic.
  • Brilliant! Fantastic! Well worth the drop in, we did not intend to stop at Winton but saw the sign and thought we should. The cost was $55 per adult but we did not know that till we were their it was close to making us think about leaving with out going in. We are both very happy we stopped in well worth it. The team are very passionate about what they are showing you and it changes our understanding from school that Australia did not have dinosaurs.
  • If you travel with a pet beware. Pets have to be restrained in the carpark. No shade at all so your car is the only option. The shortest tour they do is half an hour. No infomation on their brochure regarding pets. We understand that we can't take pets on tours but they could at least let the town information centre staff know what is expected out there.
  • I would recommend Australian Age of Dinosaurs to anyone. What an amazing place for both adults and kids alike. Couldn't fault anything. They've done an awesome job of bringing the local dinosaurs to "life".
  • This is well worth the visit and it is going to be upgraded. Fantastic show on the Australian dinosaurs
