What is it about Winton?

Winton is an authentic outback Australian town and home to less than 1,000 people.

It has a rich history to be discovered as the birthplace of Waltzing Matilda and QANTAS and links to the Great Shearers’ Strike of 1891. Winton is home to Australia’s richest collection of dinosaur fossils which can be easily explored at the Australian Age of Dinosaurs and Lark Quarry.

The region is home to diverse natural history and spectacular landscapes: rolling Mitchell Grass Downs suddenly interrupted by mesa formations, starkly beautiful red earth and spinifex country, and Channel Country, undulating plains as far as the eye can see. This is big sky country.
