This is Waltzing Matilda country - the region that inspired famous Australian poet A. B. "Banjo" Paterson to write the poem that became Australia's unofficial national anthem.

You'll get hours of enjoyment, entertainment and information there.

Winton is in boulder opal country. Also in this region, dinosaur footprints can be seen at Lark Quarry Environmental Park. 111km southwest of Winton. The footprints, estimated to be 93 million years old, are the world's only existing record of a dinosaur stampede.
Closer to town is the Australian Age of Dinosasurs Museum, a working research facility that's open to the public. Guided tours are run. This complex holds the world's largest collection of Australian dinosaur fossils, so it's well worth visiting.
