Dinosaur Stampede Roars Back

DINOSAUR STAMPEDE ROARS BACK 

The Winton Shire Council is pleased to announce The Dinosaur Stampede at Lark Quarry Conservation Park will reopen on Friday the 3rd July 2015. The Council has completed a major refurbishment of the facility.

The refurbishment will deliver an enhanced visitor experience. An extended viewing platform extending toward the trackways will enable visitors to fully appreciate the tracks. Complementing the enlarged viewing platform is state of the art audio and lighting that will ensure this amazing natural phenomena is highlighted to all who visit the Dinosaur Stampede complex.

Winton Shire Council Mayor Butch Lenton is enthusiastic about the upgrade. “Lark Quarry is a very popular tourist destination and an important element to the Winton landscape. The refurbishment project has significantly enhanced the experience while providing a safer site. Our guides also look forward to welcoming visitors and explaining the story of the dinosaur stampede”.

Winton is acknowledged as the Dinosaur Capital of Australia. The twin attractions of Australian Age of Dinosaurs and the Dinosaur Stampede at Lark Quarry draw tens of thousands of visitors to Winton annually. The upgrade will enhance the visitor experience and is a great win for the region.

Lark Quarry is located 110km southwest of Winton (half of this on sealed road); access is by guided tours at 10am, 12 noon and 2pm daily except Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

Waltzing Matilda Centre Fire

It is sad to report that the historical Waltzing Matilda Centre has been significantly damaged by fire!!

The fire ravaged throughout the Complex in the early hours of Thursday 18th June 2015. The fire was confined to the main building and did not spread to neighbouring properties.

Winton Shire Council is actively pursuing all options in respect to securing the site, making it safe and planning for demolition and ultimately, reconstruction.

It is planned to rebuild this "National Icon" in an endeavour to have it completed and operational by mid to late 2016.
