Dinosaur Coast Community Festival: Engaging with Dinosaurs

About the Project

We hope this fun filled educative celebration of our dinosaur tracks and trackmakers can help provide another pathway for the Broome community to repair and rebuild from the continuing COVID-19 impacts. Running from July 2021 to June 2022 there’ll be a range of healthy outdoor activities for dinosaur enthusiasts of all ages

DCMG volunteers in partnership with community-based arts, educational, environment and history groups are working hard to produce a range of inspiring events, activities and presentations. 

We take great pride in the Broome dinosaur tracks story and have a sense of wonderment about the country on which we live. This festival is a great way to share this with others.

The Dinosaur Coast Management Group have a packed agenda of festival events – supported by Lotterywest.

In 2017 when we first ran these they were oversubscribed. We hope to schedule the walks towards the end of September 2021. Event announcements will go out by facebook and will be posted on our News page.

Dinosaur Coast Regional and Remote Community Roadshow

The dinosaur tracks extend well beyond the Broome town boundaries.
