To prepare yourself for exploring the beaches of the Dinosaur Coast make sure to check out the ‘Tracks and Sites‘ page, install the ‘Dinosaur Coast Track Guide‘ app and download the ‘Dinosaur Coast Information Brochure‘.
Due to tides and sand movement, as well as cultural reasons we do not provide GPS or track maps detailing track locations. The ‘Dinosaur Track Guide App’ and ‘Information Brochure’ have general location information and tips on how to identify a track.
Be Aware of Tides
Please be aware that Kimberley coastal locations experience large tidal movements. Most track locations need a tide of less than 2.4 metres for tracks to be visible. View the latest tide information via the Broome Visitor Centre website, or if you’re planning to visit the Dinosaur tracks at Cable Beach, view the tide in real time from the Broome Cam.
How to get to Broome
