About Lark Quarry
Stampede! Panicked dinosaurs left more than 4000 muddy footprints on the shores of a lake 95 million years ago when a larger dinosaur tromped among them in search of a meal.
Travel across ancient mesas of jump-up country to the world’s only known dinosaur stampede site. The trackways are protected inside a solar-powered shelter built using ecologically sustainable methods.
Formed over millions of years, the ancient rocks bearing the stampede have been exposed through erosion causing a striking landscape of jump-up country with flat-topped hills (mesas), gullies, and steep, broken escarpments.

Lark Quarry is jointly managed by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service and Winton Shire Council. The Queensland Museum provides scientific advice on ways to protect the trackways.
The park’s infrastructure was built using ecologically sustainable design principles and features solar energy, rainwater collection and minimal impact construction methods.
