Day 12 - Age of Dinosaurs

Day 12 began 95 million years ago (or something like that) with our visit to the Age of Dinosaurs outside of Winton. Our visit comprised three components: A guided tour of the fossil preparation laboratory; a tour of the collection room and a couple of videos about the history of the discovery of dinosaur fossils; and a tour of the March of the Titanosaurs trackway exhibition and walk through Dinosaur Canyon.

Everything is fairly tightly managed and controlled. There are only a few areas where you are free to walk around at your leisure. It was interesting and informative.
