DRUMHELLER

Drumheller is a town in the Southern Alberta region of Alberta, Canada, famous for the rich deposits of fossils found in the area. Set in a characteristic "badlands" valley carved in the plains by the Red Deer River, Drumheller rose through coal mines — now abandoned — early in the 20th century. Now this town of 8,000 (2016) gets hundreds of thousands of visitors between May and September, making it the hub for tourism in the area.


Drumheller's tourism is strongly seasonal. Many attractions are closed or open limited hours from October through April.


The town is nestled in the Red Deer River valley. Near the bridge where the highways cross the river stands an 86-foot (26 m) tall sculpture of a Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Visitor's information centre, so this makes a good reference point. Downtown Drumheller is just south and east of this bridge.
