Riversleigh Fossil Dig

Today we are going to a Top Secret location with a team of Paleontologists from the University of NSW. Once a year the Paleontologists come to Riversleigh and dig for fossils. Sir David Attenborough claims that Riversleigh is the fourth best fossil dig in the world at present.

One of the highlights of the day was finding a jaw bone that belonged to a Marsupial Lion that roamed Australia 25 million years ago.

This was a very exciting day.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Windjana Gorge

This week we are off to Windjana Gorge in Western Australia. The huge limestone rocks are all that remain from an ancient under water reef system. We saw more fresh water crocodiles than anywhere on the trip.

One of the people staying in our camp also saw a 20 foot long scrub python on a night walk!

We hope you enjoy it!

On The Road – At Last

Hi Guys,

Well, we have finally hit the road! We are 8 days into our trip and have more videos to come.

Our first video was in Richmond at Kronosorus Korner, about 500kms west of Townsville. Thanks to everyone who is watching the blog, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do making it.

Richmond is about the hottest spot in the world for finding dinosaur fossils at the moment, and they have found some amazing bones in peoples back yards and on the Cattle properties.

The entire area used to be an inland ocean around 100 million years ago and most of the dinasours found, used to live in the ocean.

Our next stop will be at Nardoo Station. Thanks for all the comments we hope you post some more.

Have fun,

Leah & Hannah
