3,300 fossilized footprints from three species of dinosaur — an herbivorous ornithopod similar to a duck-billed dinosaur, a chicken-sized carnivore and a tyrannosaurus-type carnivore — which paleontologists have determined were created during one predatory event, have been preserved in a climate-controlled building at the Lark Quarry Conservation Park on Winton Jundah Road, southwest of Winton, Queensland, Australia.

The Dinosaur Stampede (www.dinosaurtrackways.com.au) reopened for visitors on July 3 with an extended viewing walkway and new audio exhibits. Access is by guided tour only. Arrive 15-30 minutes early for the 55-minute tour, at 10 a.m., 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. daily. AUD12 (near $8.50) adult or AUD7 child. Contact Winton Shire Council (75 Vindex St., Winton, QLD, 4735, Australia; phone +61 07 4657 2666, http://winton.qld.gov.au).
