The group’s vision is:

  • The Dinosaur Coast will become internationally renowned for its cultural heritage and its scientific and tourism values.
  • The DCMG will be recognised as a key stakeholder in the protection and promotion of the Dinosaur Coast.
DCMG is proud to be working with Yawuru and Goolarabooloo traditional owners and scientists such as Dr Steve Salisbury from The University of Queensland to ensure that their plans and activities are culturally sensitive and scientifically valid.

DCMG’s PATRON

DCMG has a very valuable supporter in their Patron, Dr Carmen Lawrence. Dr Lawrence last visited Broome in mid-2016 when she saw a number of dinosaur tracksites. She was impressed with the diversity of tracks and said she was pleased to see scientists, traditional owners and community members working together.

As scientist Dr Steve Salisbury said:

- Having Dr Lawrence as Patron is a significant coup for the DCMG and ongoing protection of the Dinosaur Coast. As former Chair of the Australian Heritage Council, Dr Lawrence has a wealth of knowledge about heritage protection, and it will be fantastic to have someone of her standing talking about the significance of the Dampier Peninsula’s dinosaur tracks in a range of public forums.

Dr Lawrence‘s words:

- I look forward to working with the DCMG and Traditional Custodians to ensure that the fine balance between protection and visitation of dinosaur sites is achieved, and helping the National Heritage-listed Dinosaur Coast to become acknowledged as one of Australia’s key dinosaur areas.

In a major milestone for the DCMG, the results of Dr Salisbury’s team’s initial research on the dinosaur tracks of the Walmadany area (James Price Point) were published in early 2017. Media interest in the research and publication was intense. The DCMG anticipates a further surge in interest in the tracks once the research findings become better known, both from Broome locals and tourists visiting the area.
