The Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum of Natural History has officially launched Dinosaur Canyon, it’s latest addition to their award-winning attraction in Winton – Australia’s Dinosaur Capital.
The addition of the new open-air exhibit is one dinosaur sized step closer towards creating an international-standard natural history museum, a first of its kind in Australia.
Dinosaur Canyon is located 2km beyond the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Reception Centre and includes:
- an interpretation of Australian natural history including biodiversity and dinosaurs
- four galleries containing life-sized dinosaur exhibits
- pathways and lookouts that are wheelchair accessible
- the Dinosaur Outpost shelter building with seating, toilets and drinking water
The dinosaur exhibits at the canyon include:
- Dinosaur Stampede exhibit
- the Pterodactylus exhibit
- the Kunbarrasaurus exhibit – all three exhibits featuring life-sized dinosaurs cast in bronze
- Death in the Billabong exhibit, a life-sized concrete dinosaur skeleton positioned as it died in a mud hole and
- the Valley of the Cycads, the beginnings of a Cretaceous Garden.
All exhibits are stationed throughout rows of massive boulders and thick vegetation below the rim of a gorge in the most spectacular part of The Jump-Up. They will offer a thrilling experience for dinosaur and sculpture lovers alike, along with sensational photo opportunities and life-long memories.
