  • Personally for me it was a great experience as a geography student. But if you are visiting as a tourist, you can safely skip this place. What I loved most here were not the fossils, but the Emu birds that rome freely inside the park. Just try not to scare them away, they will run away if uncomfortable.
  • Worth visiting once to see how tree fossils have turned to rock like..
  • Need more maintenance. But is a great place for paleontologists & biologists.
  • It's famous for wood-fossils, very rare indeed. A geoheritage site, already declared. It's not an archeological spot, rather palaeontological. A future geotourism site.
  • Isolated place u cannot find anything it ain't interesting plus it is too far from the city.. its a time waste to go here but the view from here is amazing
