Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Or 3rd visit to Winton through Summer found us in 48⁰ temps, so we decided to enjoy the car aircon and visit the National Park. We've experienced all the Winton attractions.
This National Park is absolutely amazing, from the beautiful gorge, the cool water holes, stunning landscape and homestead and farming reality. We spent all of the afternoon visiting the various locations including some if there camping sites

Scrammy gorge...what I'd call a small gorge after a lot for driving. Nothing spectacular but I enjoyed the drive. Be sure to keep driving after the first part though, the best view is further up the road across the waterhole.

Bladensburg Homestead. Well I didn't even know if it was open or not. No one present. No signs indicating anything. I just walked up o the front verandah and opened the front on the side) door. A lot more could be done here instead of empty rooms. Not sure if it's even looked after as there's a rather large wasps mud nest on one of the door handle locks on the inside. There could be a whole set up of old furniture and mannequins to make it more interesting.

If doing Scrammy Gorge then you'll be passing Delia Dalrymples grave & the homestead anyway, so you may as well pop in. The house itself I love and the position, my dream home.

Few signs or information in this NP. I visit NP's across Australia often so was surprised at the lack of information in this NP. Information centre in Winton were very unhelpful. Will not return to this region.

Enjoyed a drive through park stopping at all the marked sites on brochure from Information Centre. Very interesting walking around the old homestead.

While the old station house itself was not too memorable (especially if you've already seen larger old station houses such as Camden Station), the drive out on Scrammy road all the way to Scrammy lookout was incredible. The road takes you up onto a seemingly untouched dry mesa. Out of nowhere there is a billabong (Scrammy creek) atop the mesa. There is also the beautiful scrammy gorge -- no guard rails exist way out here at the top edge of the gorge. A wonderful 'off the beaten path' experience. Atop Scrammy mesa felt about as remote and isolated and 'in the middle of nowhere' as I've ever been.

Make sure you pick up the brochure from the waltzing Matilda centre before you go. Clearly details distances and explains sites on the drive.

Loved this place! We did the Route of the River Gum circuit, then also went to the Homestead and up to Scrammy Gorge and Scrammy Lookout (you need a 4WD for this part) but the rest you could easily do in a normal car (assuming it hasn't been raining). Lots of roos, wallabys and Wallaroos in the park, a few brolgas as well and so much bird life. Engine Hole and Skull Hole were interesting stops as well. A highlight of our trip to Winton.

Because we were in Winton without ground transport, we booked two tours with Red Dirt Tours. Day 1: the full day tour to the dinosaur fossil stampede and Carrisbrooke Station. Day 2: the half day tour to the Age of Dinosaurs Museum. We were so impressed with these that we immediately booked another half day tour, to Bladensburg National Park.

Jamie, our guide on all three tours, was a welcoming, considerate and courteous host. He had extensive knowledge of the area and the information he shared kept us interested and entertained for the entire tour. He is also a very good “spotter” of wildlife and showed us plenty of the locals. The country we drove through is spectacular, the views from the top of the hills are truly Banjo Patterson’s “vision splendid” and are stunning.

Morning/afternoon teas offered a variety of cold and hot drinks with fruit and sweet treats. Lunch on the full day tour was a delicious salad.

Jamie is a very competent driver on gravel roads and on the steep dirt tracks of Carrisbrooke and the national park. The all wheel drive vehicle, fitted out to carry seventeen people, is well suited to the road conditions which are often bumpy. Seat spacing is economy, not business, but the stops are frequent so legs are stretched. We two travellers, 70+ and arthritic, had no problems after two consecutive days in the back seat which is probably the bumpiest of the bus. Should you have concerns, ask about the seats in the cabin next to the driver.
