Fossils, Bunyeroo Gorge, Flinders Ranges

Our guide knew where to find interesting fossils. Pouring water over the rocks make them stand out well.
How interesting! Wonderful to see fossils like this. I wonder what they were?

I don't really know Pam, sorry to say. But there's a big sign up at Parachilna which mentions the word 'ediacara' in conjunction with 'fossils'. The guide did tell us, but I can't remember the unfamiliar terms.

@pamknowler @golftragic This looks like fossilized plant stems. A quick 'net search confirms that!

@voiceprintz Gee, thanks for that. Haven't had time to check that out myself. I owe you (another) one!

@888rachel @dide @flyrobin Thanks everyone. Had we just been driving through there on our own, even with information, I very much doubt we'd've seen these at all. The guide was wonderfully well-informed about all the interesting stuff. He also knew if water were poured on to the rocks the fossils showed up so much better.
