In the Dinosaur Triangle

June 2018

It’s a cold morning and we have a long drive ahead of us. This westerly route to Longreach is shorter but there are fewer towns. As we listen to the local radio they are discussing tourism and the dinosaur trail. “There is a kronosaurus down there that needs to be excavated.” Says the local expert. It seems that in a short decade or so cattle and sheep have taken a backseat to dinosaurs around here. No longer is cattle the king.

Suddenly a hundred galahs wheel in front of us in a cloud of pink and grey, what a sight.

There are small sand hills and wedge tailed eagles that are slow to fly away from their roadside lunch. One wonders how many dinosaurs are out there waiting to be discovered.
