Dinosaur Stampede at Lark Quarry Conservation Park, Winton

4.5
#2 of 11 in Things to do in Winton
The world’s only known evidence of a dinosaur stampede, Dinosaur Stampede at Lark Quarry Conservation Park contains 3,300 fossilized footprints of large predators, which stalked and caused the flight of around 150 two-legged dinosaurs nearly 95 million years ago. Research conducted on the site confirmed that these footprints were most likely made over a period of several days. It is believed that a large herd of small dinosaurs gathered on the banks of a forest lake to drink, when larger, meat-eating dinosaurs approached them, triggering a panicked stampede across the muddy flats. Visit the Conservation Building, which was erected to shelter this ancient site, for a valuable lesson about a cooler world before mammals, when dinosaurs ruled the planet.
