The nationwide history checklist was once created in January 2004 to realize, have a good time and guard locations of remarkable background price to the state. nationwide historical past encompasses these areas that display the richness of Australia's terribly varied common, historical and Indigenous historical past. One point of ordinary background that has been little explored is Australia’s wealth of outstanding fossil websites. whereas a small variety of fossil websites have risen to public prominence, there are various lesser-known websites that experience vital background values.
The Australian background Council engaged palaeontologists from kingdom museums and the Northern Territory Museum and artwork Gallery to assemble lists of remarkable fossil websites and to record their features and relative value opposed to a number of different types, in order to additional our figuring out approximately Australia’s vital fossil background. websites that have been indexed for nationwide or international background values weren't incorporated within the areas for attention, with the point of interest being on lesser-known yet nonetheless vital websites. This booklet is an account of the palaeontologists’ findings. many of the websites that have been integrated within the preliminary lists have seeing that been known via directory at the nationwide background checklist or the area history List.
Australia's Fossil history offers an invaluable connection with the phenomenal fossil websites it catalogues, and offers a clearer figuring out of the background values of such websites. extra regularly, it contributes to a better appreciation of Australia’s geological and fossil range and permits readers to benefit extra approximately Australia's prehistory.

Studies of the echinoderm fauna are good but not comprehensive. The locality stands as a typical outcrop area for the terminal Cambrian Datsonian stage and will benefit from additional research. Fossil significance While the fossils found at this site are not rare organisms in isolation, as a biostratigraphic assemblage the material is of significance. Such a well preserved laterally and vertically extensive section and sequence of faunas is unusual. The site provides an excellent representation of Late Cambrian and Early Ordovician faunas, which are preserved in more disparate localities elsewhere.
