I wish I could show you more but I actually went to the beach to find some beach rocks, minerals, and shells! (If u guys wanna see them, I would gladly show but ofc they are not fossils lol)

 

Will post more to this thread if I find more cool fossils near Bar Beach! 

 

Thanks to my buddy pal @Paleoworld-101 for always helping me with identifying things I find (and don't find haha) :tiphat:

Week 11 at uni, one more week to go (plus exams lol) and then its time to HUNT SOME FOSSILSSSSSS :megdance:

 

Stay safe y'all, freedom day today in NSW hahah :default_rofl:

Nicely done, the first find of many! Seems like a nice stretch of coast too. Looking forward to seeing what you come across next.
