Well worth the visit. Local guide was knowledgeable and informative. Make sure you have a hat and sunscreen, this is a good walk, but easily traversed by all.

Hi, If you want to find more about the Age of Dinosaurs from Indonesia then visit their website. Google: Australian Age of Dinosaurs. Better still come to Queensland and see it at first hand. Best wishes.
