Lark Quarry Conservation Park

Most people come here for the Dinosaur Stampede exhibit, a unique preservation of footprints and multimedia presentation of how they may have come to be. Around the site are a couple of walks - the Spinifex circuit (500m, 30mins) and Jump-Up Loop (90mins, 3.5km) - that showcase the arid landscape around this area and are well-signposted with information cards to entertain the young and old and worthwhile either before or after viewing the Stampede. Do take a hat and water. The sun is cruel even in winter.

The walk has a lot of steps and runs beside fenced cliff edges, so walkers will need to be fit and comfortable with heights. The walk explores the historic National Pass, Wentworth falls, the Valley of the Waters and many other highlights. There is an optional side trip to the Conservation Hut for lunch, before returning to the start via the Overcliff walk and Den Fennella. A great way to explore the majestic views.
