Along the Tropic of Capricorn, starting on the Capricorn coast at Yeppoon and roaming inland through Blackwater, Longreach, Winton to Boulia, you will find a living museum of prehistoric and geological history.
Discover the dinosaurs that roamed the land and the marine reptiles that swam in the ancient ‘Great Inland Sea’ of Queensland’s Outback around 100 million years ago. Get amongst history by fossicking for dinosaur fossils or by coming face to face with impressive skeletons in the museums throughout the region.
You can visit the limestone Capricorn Caves to see fossils ingrained in the cave walls, fossick for dinosaur fossils at Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum or see the world’s best-preserved dinosaur stampede at Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways.
