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.

    Do not miss this opportunity to see what has been discovered in our backyard.

    Congratulations to the founders and the amazing work they have done to build such a magnificent museum.

    The 4 hour tour was incredible and the staff amazing.

    Definitely put this on your list of things to visit and do.

    You may think not yet another drive, 110km to see some dinosaur prints, but the car journey out is so rememberable, feels like the true outback. The tour itself is only around 40mins and the prints are all undercover. My husband and I found it very educational, and mind blowing. Out 10 year old enjoyed it but wasn’t has interested in it as we were. After the tour, we did one of the small walks around the area and got some great photos. This actually was our favourite place on the entire 10 day trip.

    Interesting, not sure that I would go back, but if you are in town, it is probably a must see, depending on if you are into old things

    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

    In the last quarter of 2022 my wife and I travelled with Outback Aussie Tours on a one week bus tour of Longreach and Winton in Queensland. Having completed the first three full days touring around Longreach, we then set out to enjoy two interesting touring days around Winton.

    Our Winton leg was jam packed over the two days and included well renowned and conventional tourist attractions such as the Age of Dinosaurs; Lark Quarry and the Dinosaur Stampede; Carisbrooke Station and The Three Sisters mesa landform and the Waltzing Matilda Centre.

    In addition to these premier attractions we also had two unconventional sideline visits in Winton. One was to the Musical Fence (where visitors can play spontaneous music on both The Fence and the Junk-and-Found Percussion Park). The other, of course is Arno’s Wall.

    Arno’s Wall is the brainchild and masterpiece of Arno Grotjahn, who emigrated from Germany with his wife Rita in the 1960s and worked at the opal mines at Opalton ( around 120 kilometres south of Winton). He has spent his life collecting junk from the town dump and embedding this into a weatherproof, durable base made from concrete and rock from his Opal Mine. It is truly an amazing example of junk art. Embedded in the concrete and rock are just about every household item imaginable including, but not limited to, old tyres, car parts, motor bikes, toilet pedestals, type writers, sewing machines, refrigerator doors, boat propellers – even a kitchen sink – the list can go on and on. It’s been described as a modern wonder of art and architecture. The wall is 70 metres long and 2 metres high. To honour this man’s eccentricity, a recreational park has been established at the site in his name called Arno’s Park.

    This is not a place where I would envisage you would spent hours pouring over all the junk art on display and I think 20 minutes is sufficient time to soak up the atmosphere. However, I guess there might be some who would linger much longer because the placement of the various junk items in the concrete and rock is fascinating to marvel and admire.

    I like the quote from Arno himself stated on an information board telling everyone about the wall and his motivation for creating it. It reads “ This wall contains every engine from the start of mankind up to now” Arno says ” The whole history of machines, in other words the history of mankind”. In his own unconventional way Arno Grotjahn has left us a rich legacy of the impact of man and his machines through his junk art.

    I am glad we did the short walk from the North Gregory Hotel to view Arno’s Wall. While I am sure it may not be "everyone’s cup of tea " ( not to everyone's liking), it does to my mind stand out as an attraction that should not be ignored on any Winton travel itinerary. – if nothing else to admire something from a man who has dared to be different. The good news for travellers is that it is free entry.

    Worth a visit for a bit of fun. We couldn’t get the musical fence to work! Too technical for us! Mum and I enjoyed playing some of the innovative instruments!

    What a great experience . There are only 2 open air theatres in Australia. Winton and Broome. This one built in 1918. Canvas deck chairs. Take a cushion. Buy some snacks. Enjoy the ride.

    Great guide, great view, great nibbles and wine. It showed how passionate Vicky is to our environment and the knowledge she has and shared.
    Would recommend everyone to do this and any other tour Vicky offers. Can’t wait to put the photos into print.
