The three-toed dinosaurs have left traces of a few tens of meters in the originaly soft clay. The dinosaurs walked on their hind legs. The farm also has a bed and breakfast and camping opportunities.

The nearby Mt Etjo Safari Lodge is a second set of dinosaur tracks too see. Also here are camping facilities.
