Sites Fossiliferes de Riversleigh

Des fossiles retraçant l’évolution des mammifères australiens sont figés pour toujours dans le calcaire du site fossilifère de Riversleigh dans l’outback du Queensland. Ce site du patrimoine mondial est situé dans la section sud-est du Parc national de Lawn Hill et ses fossiles montrant des mammifères vieux de 25 millions d’années très bien conservés valent absolument le détour.
