G'day Everyone! Yesterday my dad and I were lucky to visit Batesford Quarry in Geelong, Victoria. The fossils here are miocene in age from the Batesford Limestone. Fossils foudn here consist of sharks teeth, cetacean fossils, rare bird and terrestial mammal material and invertebrate fossils, mainily echinoderms. Batesford Quarry is one of the places my dad and I have been wanting to go to for many years due to it's high concentration of vertebrate fossils compared to other Victorian fossil sites (Mostly Shark Teeth). We arrived at the Quarry around 8:30 AM and spent the next 6 hour
Hi. I'm very new and have never done this before however i have taken an interest in fossicking. As i live in Melbourne Australia, I plan to visit the Batesford limestone quarry to look for some shark teeth. I wonder if anyone can guide me about what i need, if any license is needed, specific area i need to go to, if it is open for public and other stuff that i may need to know. I know a lot of people here have done fossicking here but i can't seem to find any details on the stuff i mentioned above. Thank you so much and hope to hear from you guys soon!
