Siti di fossili di Riversleigh

I fossili che mostrano l'evoluzione dei mammiferi australiani sono conservati per sempre nel calcare del sito di Riversleigh Fossil nell'Outback del Queensland. Questo sito patrimonio mondiale si trova nella sezione sud-orientale del Parco nazionale di Lawn Hill ed è da visitare per vedere i fossili di mammiferi ben conservati risalenti a 25 milioni di anni fa.
