130 million years ago dinosaurs roamed the Kimberley coast, today all that remains are amazing fossilised footprints..... now that's impressive!
Along Broome’s Gantheaume Point and up to James Price Point on the Dampier Peninsula, an amazing 21 different types of tracks made by theropod, sauropod, ornithopod and thyreophoran dinosaurs have been discovered. Dinosaurs roamed the coastal marshes and swamp forests, leaving tracks in the sandy tidal flats and abandoned river channels.
Aboriginal people of the Dampier Peninsula and wider west Kimberley had strong cultural connections with dinosaur tracks, the footprints tracing the journeys of their ancestors.
Footprints can be seen at low tide around Cable Beach, Gantheaume Point and Reddell Beach. For site locations and tips on how to find them, check out the Dinosaur Coast Management Group website.
