Dinosaur things to do in Broome

If you want to prepare yourself for some exploring on the beaches of Broome here are some things you can do.

Download Our Dinosaur Coast Tracker App

This free, user-friendly app can help you identify 130 million-year-old dinosaur tracks along the Dinosaur Coast.

Learn about the tracks and the dinosaurs that made them.

Similar to a bird identification guide but much more interactive, the app has 360 deg 3D images of the Broome coastline 130 million years ago and the most scientifically accurate rendered images of the dinosaurs local to our area.

There are activity guides for the kids, tide charts, and a menu to learn so much more.

Look at some real tracks in comfort

Two actual theropod tracks are on display in the Broome Museum’s main building, just after you enter. One was found by a landscaper and the other was cut out from a rock platform. A person was criminally charged for this in the 1990s.

Interested in seeing some casts?

The Broome Library has three hanging on its walls. They were taken from real Dinosaur Coast tracks.

Hunt for Broome’s only dinosaur ‘fossil’

Go to Hin Park on the corner of Hin Way and Sariago Terrace, Waranyjarri. The ‘fossil’ is in the water/sand playground. Take a brush.
