WorldBlue  In short

Outstanding fossil site. Fossilized remains of very unusual animals have been discovered here such as marsupial lions Wakaleo, 3 meters high birds Dromornis, giant platypus Obdurodon, tree-dwelling-crocodiles Mekosuchus and up to 6 meters long snakes Wonambi.

Riversleigh lies within the traditional country of the Waanyi Aboriginal people.
