Ancient Flora Stories: The rich heritage of Yea's Flora Fossil Site

Yea Fossil

An ordinary roadside cutting on Limestone Road, Yea, Victoria, marks a place that overturned long held scientific understanding of how and when plants evolved. The site is listed in the National Heritage List for its significant contribution to the world’s understanding of our ancient earth’s secrets and for its association with Dr Cookson, one of the most eminent palaeobotanists of the 20th century. This project tells its story.
