Nilpena Station Fossil Tours 2018

Release date: 19-Jun-2018

Visit the National Heritage Listed Fossil Site not accessible to the general public with specialist guides from Dr Mary Droser’s Research Team.

The Ediacaran fossil site at Jane and Ross Fargher's Nilpena Station is one of the most important in the world, representing the earliest evidence of complex life on earth.

The Ediacara period is a globally recognised geological era between 635-545 million years ago and named after the Edicara Hills of the Flinders Ranges, South Australia.

These fossil fields were included on the National Heritage List in 2007, are a subject of Sir David Attenborough's 'First Life' BBC series, and are a core aspect of the SA Government's 2018 nomination of the Flinders Ranges for World Heritage Listing.
