At the southern end of Cable Beach, approximately 6 kilometers from the town of Broome in Western Australia is Gantheaume Point, a scenic area of red sandstone cliffs where one can observe footprints of dinosaurs that once roamed in this area. The fossilized footprints are located on the flat rocks 30 meters out to the sea and can only be seen at low tide. The tracks are 130 million years old and extend in patches for 80 kilometers along the coast. There are walk trails down to the flat sandstone rocks on which the footprints are preserved. A couple of plaster casts have been made of the original prints and embedded into the rocks at the top of the cliff for anyone who visits at high tide, or if you don’t want to walk on the slippery reef, which can get dangerous.
