Les sites fossilifères 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.

Pour en savoir plus sur les fossiles :

  • Etudiez-les sur place sur le site D de Riversleigh. Il s’agit de la seule partie du site qui soit accessible au public.
  • Parcourez le Riversleigh Fossil Trail qui vous emmènera tout en haut de l’affleurement calcaire qui surplombe le site D.
  • Visitez le Centre des fossiles de Riversleigh sur Mount Isa pour observer les paléontologues en plein travail, tâchant de rassembler les pièces du puzzle de l’histoire de ces fossiles de mammifères.
  • Explorez le paysage du Parc national de Lawn Hill.
  • Remontez encore un peu plus le cours du temps et découvrez les fossiles de dinosaures également découverts dans l’outback du Queensland.
