Winton QLD – The Facts
This area is considered to be the Dinosaur Capital of Australia. It’s the home of Waltzing Matilda and the Queensland Boulder Opal! This is an area that’s rich in terms of natural wildlife and fauna, historical culture and complex heritage.
Waltzing Matilda was first performed right here in Wintson QLD’s famous North Gregory Hotel. It’s now become our ‘unofficial’ national anthem and was inspired by true events at the nearby Combo Waterhole.
At the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum, 24km south-east of Winton, you’ll see the world’s largest collection of Australian dinosaur fossils, displayed in the Collection Room and prepared in the Dinosaur Laboratory. Dinosaur bones are on hand in the laboratory for you to dig around and explore with. This area is the home of the only recorded evidence of a dinosaur stampede in Australia (Lark Quarry Conservation Park) and it’s considered an iconic national monument.
Boulder opals can be purchased and viewed right in town and you’re in close quarters with Queensland’s older opal fields at Opalton.
