Broome’s dinosaur tracks are Nationally Significant

The Dinosaur Coast Management Group is pleased to release the draft final Dinosaur Coast National Heritage Management Plan for the Willie Creek to Crab Creek Intertidal zone.

It explains why this part of the Dinosaur Coast is so special and how, if we all work together, the National Heritage values of the Broome Sandstone and Ichnofossils (including dinosaur tracks) can be conserved and preserved while increased community and visitor interest is managed.
