Australian Fossil Mammal Sites (Riversleigh / Naracoorte)

Riversleigh and Naracoorte, situated in the north and south respectively of eastern Australia, are among the world’s 10 greatest fossil sites. They are a superb illustration of the key stages of evolution of Australia’s unique fauna.

Trivia

  • Scientists know that megafauna (very large animals) once roamed our continent because of the fossils they found at Riversleigh,Naracoorte and other places across Australia. These fossils tell us of how our unique animals evolved over a long period of time and how climate change and the arrival of humans affected them.
  • Tourism is very well supported at this site yet, authorities have to carefully manage the impacts of tourism. For instance, in Naracoorte, access to some caves is restricted. Where access is allowed, pathways, handrails and electric lights are in place for safe public viewing and to protect the value of the caves. To support the growing number oftourists,facilities have been developed including car parks, walking tracks and picnic areas.

Year of Inscription: 1994
