Lark Quarry Visitor Facilities Upgrade: progress reports

Progress report one (September 2009)

Planning certification and council approval has been finalised. The waste management facility design is complete, and architect, building design and waste management suppliers' designs are also in place. Construction is due to begin in early 2010.

Progress report two (February 2010)

A site investigation for soil testing and wastewater design has been undertaken. Discussions with the Winton Shire Council have been taken place to finalise the concept and design brief for the proposed building extension and wastewater management system.

Due to severe flooding this project has been delayed and will now be complete by December 2010.

Final result (April 2011)

The Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways, which are found in the Lark Quarry Conservation Park in Western Queensland, are on the National Heritage List. An upgrade to visitor facilities has been undertaken to enhance the experience for the approximately 10,000 visitors to the site each year and has included:

  • additional, upgraded toilet facilities utilising a fully integrated waste water treatment system that uses the treated waste to water planted areas thus improving shade and protection around the facilities;
  • improvements to car and bus parking areas and walkways; and
  • repair and upgrading of buildings and interpretive display materials.
