Dinosaur footprints

The coastline of the Dampier Peninsula in the West Kimberley preserves one the largest and most significant stretches of dinosaur tracksites anywhere in the world. At very low tides you can see 130 million year old dinosaur footprints. These footprints often get filled with sand and sediment so can be difficult to find. Some of the types of prints found are not found anywhere else in Australia.
