A little bit of excitement for some of the campers when a couple of Brolgas visited the caravan park.

The Age of Dinosaurs Museum is situated on the edge of a mesa a short distance from Winton. The location is spectacular and the main museum building blends with its location.

The separate laboratory building is a short distance away, accessed by a path along the surprisingly flat mesa.

In the lab, volunteers work on the fossils.

We tried a walk that went below the cliffs. The path wasn't all that well defined and we must have lost it at some point and the last part of the walk was a bit rough, but we made it back.
