This little town of raising sheep and cattle is also known as The Dinosaur Capital of Australia thanks to the historical finding of dinosaur bones and footprints.

Some signage that give more information about dinosaurs and their habitat that time

A map is the most important and valuable tool for exploring a new place. Dinosaur Stampede National Monument provides a kid's map. If you have 45 minutes to spare, you can explore the Deep Gully track and use kid's map to lead you there. Don't forget to bring a frisbee and pack a picnic!
