Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Western Australia / Kimberley Region / Broome / Gantheaume Point
Gantheaume Point is one of a few places in the entire world where you can see dinosaur footprints dated to the Early Cretaceous period (approximately 130 million years old). These ancient tracks can only be seen during very low tide, but there are also plant fossils preserved extensively in the area's sandstone deposits and in coastal exposures farther north. The site features red cliffs and turquoise blue water, attracting visitors from around the world. Time your visit to the area for a low tide to see the dinosaur tracks, or stop by at any other time to enjoy the otherworldly landscape (often compared to that of Mars). The contrast of the red sand against the blue water makes for stunning photographs.

Gantheaume Point reviews
We had a Harley Trike Ride down to the point with Steve, so knowledgeable about all the history for us to check out while we were there.

Easy access and great photo opportunities. The colours are wonderful. Lighthouse was certainly different! Osprey nest a bonus.

Entrance Point Broome is really interesting because of the many dinosaur footprint fossils in the rocks. There are huge round ones, and long toe/ claw ones. The rocks are interesting shapes too, and it's a nice spot for sunsets. You can see the cruise ships passing by, and sometimes whales.
Spectacular spot for all fitness level! Easy walk in and then easy rocks to climb around to get down near the water. Stunning contrast of reds, greens and blues! Rock pools were empty at low tide
