Description

This covers the Winton Longreach trip the back way via the Jundah Road and Lochern National Park. It includes a deviation to Lark Quarry Environmental Park, the site of the world's largest recorded dinosaur stampede. Access to the site is now by guided tiour only (10am 12pm & 2pm during winter) but well worth the visit. The country throughout the drive varies significantly as does road conditions. 4WD is recommended past the Lark Quarry junction as there are numerous sections with loose sand. Overall it is a more pleasant drive than the Landsborough Highway bitumen if you can afford the time.
