Finding a fossilised track (footprint) made by a dinosaur 130 million years ago is a very special experience.
Tracks along the Dinosaur Coast range in size from 12cm to more than 1.7m. Over 21 different types of tracks have been identified and thousands of examples have been recorded.
Most of Australia’s dinosaur fossils are found in the eastern states and are between 90 and 127 million years old. Tracks found along the Dinosaur Coast are older, between 127 to 140 million years old.
