Hunt for fossils

Dinosaurs once ruled the stunning Bunurong coastline, with thousands of bones, teeth and fossils found in recent years at this dino-hotspot. Travel back in time 115 million years at Inverloch's Dinosaur Dreaming dig site and take a humbling walk in the footprints of the dinosaurs.

Depending on your tour option, you can see a dinosaur footprint, volcanic lava, earthquake fault lines and petrified trees from the age of the dinosaurs. Hunt for fossils or have a go at breaking rocks open to find clues about a prehistoric world within.

Tour schedules

Plan your visit at low tide. When the tide is out, an extensive rock platform is exposed, revealing rock pools and imprints that tell a prehistoric story, tour schedules are now available for your booking convenience.
