Follow in the footsteps of dinosaurs across and ancient inland seabed and experience the rugged beauty of some of the most dramatically changing landscape in Australia when you embark on this fascinating drive through Queensland’s north west outback.
Fully sealed roads lead you from the largest inland city and mining heart of Australia, Mount Isa, on a round circuit through unique towns such as Julia Creek, Cloncurry, Richmond, Hughenden and Winton. You’ll hear the bush legends of yesteryear and meet the colourful characters that live and work here today. They’ll greet you with a warm g’day and send you on the trail of dinosaurs where you can fossick for your very own valuable fossils.
While this drive can be conquered in a two-wheel-drive vehicle, some of the detours and side trips may be better suited to a four-wheel-drive. Whatever vehicle you’re travelling in, be sure to check the road conditions before you head off on this adventure of a lifetime.
