          Great excursion to Age of Dinosaurs
          The Red Dirt our tour guide picked us up from our accommodation and transported us to the venue, about 25 km from Winton. During the drive Brett, our tour guide shared some of his vast know local knowledge. The Age of Dinosaurs tour is amazing and is highly recommended.

          4 day Winton tour
          We loved our time in Winton and highly recommend Red Dirt Tours to get the most out of a visit there. We had most time with tour guide Bec but also with Vicki and Hylton and they were all superb. The tours were well organised friendly relaxed fun and informative. Bec was so knowledgeable and if she couldn’t answer a question on the spot she’d come back with an answer later. 10/10 for passion and dedication.

          Package of tours is a great way to explore the Winton area
          I'd never been to Winton before, and after a few 1000s kms of driving, I was very glad to join a tour. This package was 4 nights' accommodation, with 3 full days of touring that combined some of Red Dirt's individual tours. It was a good balance of actual tours (Age of Dinosaurs, Lark Quarry, Sunset tour etc) plus a confortable amount of free time to wander the town or use the provided vouchers to visit the Waltzing Matilda Centre etc. Our guides were Vicki (proprietor) , Bec and Dana. They were all good drivers (the various vehicles were comfortable too). The other passengers were a lovely group. The guides were engaging, well informed (without being overbearing), cheerful and helpful. Red Dirt has good relationships with venues and landowners. It meant that we had good access to sites that are perhaps not generally available to individuals. Well done, Red Dirt - had a great time!

          Winton Explorer Package
          We did the three day trip which was fantastic. Bec was our tour guide for the first day and a half. She shared her incredible knowledge of the flora, fauna, ancient landscape and geology. I have never had a more informative travel guide in all my travel both within Australia and overseas. She was witty and friendly and also very thoughtful of everyones needs. Our whole group absolutely loved her, we learned heaps. Also the landscape and views were amazing as well as the fascinating ancient history. Everyday was fabulous, we were well fed and well looked after. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

Second tour was the Rangelands Rifts Sunset tour - Dana our guide was fabulous and the destination was amazing! We all loved it, lovely catering again. Highly recommend both experiences!

          An excellent tour from Winton
          We took the 3/4 Carisbrooke and Lark Quarry tour from Winton. This was one of the best day tours I have ever taken, so glad I decided to let someone else do the driving! Our driver and tour guide Bec was simply amazing. She may have originally been a Sydneysider but she really knows the area extremely well and the whole tour was very very informative. As a result we learnt a lot about the local fauna and flora and generally the history of Winton. I have already recommended to one friend - who has already booked this tour. Would have no hesitation in recommending this tour to anyone. Just do it , thank me later

          Excellent day in the Qld outback. The tour driver, Bec, gave informative talks on the country we traveled throughout the day. She also produced a fantastic morning tea and lunch.

          Dinosaurs & Sunset Tours
          Both tours were amazing. The dinosaur tour was incredible and very educational and all the people, who have been involved with the museum etc, should be very proud of what they have given to the public to see, wonder at and enjoy. As for the sunset tour, what could be more enjoyable than walking through the Rift's on a Mesa and then watching a sunset with a glass of wine and lovely nibbles.

          Expert knowledge, stunning scenery
          We had the pleasure of Dana as our guide, she was a wealth of knowledge in particular about native plants and animals. She gave a very thorough tour of Rangelands and the rifts. We then had a spectacular sunset which is the perfect backdrop for the delicious cheese platter and glass of wine provided. Divine!

        We took a Red Dirt Tour out to the Dinosaur Stampede and Merton Gorge and would highly recommend this tour company to others. The attention to guests to make sure we had a great day was appreciated, from a prompt pick up in a comfortable air-conditioned bus, to the interesting commentary during the trip, to the fresh and healthy lunch provided, the whole day was a highlight of our trip to outback Qld. Would highly recommend.

        Thank you Lisa for such a great review and for recommending others to visit Winton. It is a bit of a drive to get the Stampede so why not enjoy the journey there with a little bit of comfort and let Red Dirt Tours take care of the details whilst you sit back and relax.

        I will start off with a thankyou - Luke our amazing Tour guide was amazing. He had what I call the perfect mix of Patience, engagement and a peaceful demeanour all the while being extremely knowledgeable about the region and it's history. We had a small group of 5 on our tour and we all felt like it was a highlight of each of our trips so far. Luke welcomes questions and answers them completely where he is able. The tour itself was fascinating. so much to learn about our amazing Country and it's Stories. The Dinosaur Stampede was a big surprise for me and I felt this was a great way to cap the tour along with the amazing scenery and stop points along the way. Be prepared for a big day. and let the Country speak to you through your Tour guide and the stories whilst you travel the many miles of red dirt and scenery. Even got the chance to fossick (and find) a few bits of Opal at the Fossicking stop. Good food provided and plenty of refreshment when needed. Again Thanks to Luke and Red dirt - Well worth the investment. Paul and Ruth.

        From the promised on-time pick up at Winton Wanderers Van Park to our drop off at the same location, our group could not fault any aspects of our 3/4 day tour to Lark Quarry. Luke, our driver and guide, was informative and well organised. Morning tea on the mesa with great views, then lunch at the quarry. As the trip is 110 km each way, much of it on rough dirt road, it means that all participants can enjoy the views and experience. Naturally, the entry to the Dinosaur Stampede was included in the cost.

        A wonderful, educational experience. We did the 3/4 day Dinosaur Stampede tour. The guide had an incredible knowledge of the area’s history, botany, zoology that kept us rapt throughout the hours spent on the tour. The lunch served was simple but delicious.

        There was no "Favorite part of the day" the whole day was a wonderful experience. Vicki our guide and driver has an encyclopedic knowledge of the area, the fauna and flora. The Dinosaur Stampede has been improved dramatically since our last visit and is not to be missed.

        What an experience! Bec our amazing guide picked us up from the camp ground with a big smile on her face and was so passionate about what she does. We went out to the dinosaur stampede which is a long drive however Bec was so knowledgeable about the local area, she made the trip amazing, spotting lots of local wildlife also! Really tasty morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea! We took our 4 kids aged between 9 and 11 and they had a great time!! Thank you so much! Highly recommended 👌🏻

        Highly recommend this tour! Easy to book, the tour included hotel pick up and drop off which was nice. Bus was new to the company and very comfortable. Our driver and guide was Luke, he is a real credit to the company! So knowledgeable and interesting, he knew so much about the history of Winton, the geography, flora and fauna. Morning tea was served at the lookout on a private property, then the drive to the Dinosaur Stampede for lunch, lots of food and delicious. One of the best yours we have done anywhere, it cam recommended to us by friends. Do it, it's great!

        Loved this tour! Peter our guide was a veritable renaissance man - knowledgeable about geology, history (First Nations and Western), flora and fauna, and importantly - fossils and dinosaurs!

        The Merton Gorge is stunning and provides a great illustration of the geological forces at work in the region.

        The dinosaur stampede exhibition is mesmerising.

        Finally, the food was fantastic- healthy and filling.

        It was a fabulous day, full of information about the geology, fauna and flora of our beautiful state of Qld.
        The vastness of the red dirt of the outback was an incredible view.
        The dinosaur stampede was absolutely fascinating. Mindblowing history from 90 million years ago when dinosaurs roamed Qld. This tour was a highlight of our trip in outback Qld and we would highly recommend.

        This was an excellent tour and enhanced by the enthusiasm & knowledge of our tour guide Bec. She pointed out plants & animals and the geographic features and we had access to views not available to independent drivers. The tour of Dinosaur Stampede building at Lark Quarry was also excellent. A delicious lunch & morning & afternoon tea was included.
