Visit the Australian Age of Dinosaurs with the largest collection of Australian dinosaur bones in the world.

You will see real bones and professional animation to recreate the dinosaurs before your eyes. The Ultimate Dinosaur Tour at the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum is 4 sections - Laboratory, Collection Room, Dinosaur Canyon and March of the Titanosaurs. All 4 sections are included in your half day tour. The Museum's passionate "Dino Enthusiasts" provide these site tours and we make sure you are in the right spot at the right time - no hassles, no waiting to book in. The Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum of Natural History was established by a local Winton grazier who was finding numerous dinosaur bones on his property and his passion led to establishing the museum as a not for profit organisation. The museum continues to grow with new exhibits regularly throughout the year, and new sections of the museum opened every couple of years.
