Area Activities and Interests

 
Fossil Tour
Cooradigbee Fossil Tour
On Cooradigbee walking, bushwalking, fishing, swimming, fossil field viewing excursions (no collecting is permitted), mountain biking and picnicing are all popular activities. In the Homestead garden you can while away the hours relaxing with a game of Boulle, Croquet or Chess, or merely sitting and absorbing the magnificent landscape.

 

Cooradigbee fossil tours  are available by appointment only (no collecting is permitted). Wee Jasper valley is basically an ancient seascape from Early Devonian times (400 million years old), where the old seabed has been turned on its side to expose the layers of sediment. The stratigraphy exposed covers a 10-12 million year timespan, exposing rich coral reefs, algae and fish remnants. The fish found include Lung fish, Placoderms and Acanthonians as well as many others. The area is world renowned for the quality of preservation of specimans. Tours take up to 2.5hours and cost is $15 for adults and $10 for children (there is a minumum charge of $110 for a tour)

For more details on fossil field viewing excursions  give us a call and arrange a time.
