Tony Martin's Gippsland visit in May 2009

Tony Martin (right) talks to Gary Wallis at Cape Liptrap,
where Gary and friends have found some amazing Pleistocene trackways.
Tony uses friend and colleague Mike Hall, from
Monash University, as a human ladder
so he can photograph some Early Cretaceous crustacean
 burrow systems at Eagle's Nest, near Inverloch.
Tony and his lovely wife Ruth examine the rock structures at Eagle's Nest.
Tony found the first dinosaur footprint near the Dinosaur Dreaming site,
near Inverloch, in 2006. Since then he has found numerous
Early Cretaceous fossil crustacean burrows in the Strzeleckis and Otways.

  1. Thank you so much Dinosaur Dreaming for entwining our lives with yours. Gerry and Lesley Kool were the kindest and gentlest of hosts, showing Chiboogamoo (Tony Martin) and me what their "eyes" had found at Eagle's Nest and other places along the coast when we visited in May 2009. The enthusiasm of those who love the fossil past was euphoric. A good time was had by all, and progress in science was done. A lovely place, even more lovely people--seeing into the past, so we understand today! I am delighted to have found this blog!
