Mary and Pip enjoying the fish fossils
A small crew has been looking for fossils near Koonwarra.  In 2009, Dr Tom Rich and colleagues had noticed that the Koonwarra sediment looked at bit like that in western Liaoning Province in China (the paper was called A potential Gondwanan polar Jehol Biota lookalike in Victoria, Australia and published in the Transactions of the Royal Society of Victoria). So the team is looking for any sign that these sediments might contain feathered dinosaurs, birds, pterosaurs and mammal skeletons.

So far they have found a number of beautiful fish fossils.
