Headed up the Landsborough Hway to Mt Isa and NT in May and wondered if the sidetracks to see dinosaur fossils eg muttaburrasaurus etc are worth the time and trouble and if so which is the best the best of them along this route

I would presume any fossil sites would be well protected and on private property, The best way to see the fossils would be to visit the Outback at Isa Centre
center or if near Richmond visit the Kronosaurus Corner richmond

and when in Mt Isa this link will give you some leads
mt-isa

Hope you enjoy your visit

If you are into this sort of thing then Lark Quarry south of Winton is well worth visit. It is where they have the footprints of the dino stampede.

Certainly worth the drive out there from Winton. Allan Smith the guide has a passion for the geological history of the area and brings alive the situation leading up to the stampede.

Could detour through Muttaburra and Hughenden where they have a skeleton on show.
