Queensland Dinosaur Trail

Dinosaur Trail - Queensland Australia

October - December 2021

From Gold Coast traveling West in October

Leaving October 2021 we headed west on our way to the dinosaur trail. First on the bucket list was Carnarvon Gorge, we spent a week exploring this amazing area, hiking, swimming and animal watching.  We worked our way out west visiting free camps, farms and outback towns.  The Dinosaur Trail is 3 main towns in outback Queensland where dinosaur fossils have been found.  These towns have embraced all things Dinosaur and are fun to visit!  Below are our posts on activities, camps and experiences we had way out west.
