Explore the Dinosaur Coast

Australia’s Dinosaur Coast is in the Kimberley region in the north of Western Australia and is National Heritage-listed. You can walk in the footsteps of dinosaurs on spectacular beaches.

For thousands of years, dinosaur tracks have been part of the cultural heritage of the Aboriginal people of the Dampier Peninsula and greater west Kimberley. Scientifically, the Dinosaur Coast has been described as “the Cretaceous equivalent of the Serengeti”Dr Steve Salisbury.
