Hi From Sydney Australia

Hi,

I have a 4 year old son who is digging up my backyard looking for fossils and dinosaurs, and coming home every day with rocks that I have to split open to see if fossils are inside. Today we went digging by a creek where there was a sandstone quarry many years ago.

So a few days ago I did an internet search about buying fossils and was shocked by how much is out there and affordability. Then I looked up sites around Sydney where you can go to find fossils and found this site, so here I am! I'm starting to get hooked!

I own no fossils as yet, am wary of online sales (but have been checking out eBay daily) and have never found a fossil "in the wild". So there much to look forward to with my 4 year old (and older two), and much to learn.

Thanks in advance to all.

G'day from a fellow Sydneysider!

Welcome from MinnesOta! :D

This is a WONDERFUL hobby and truly awesome for kids! I really like taking kids fossil hunting. My blog and website is geared toward families and kids and I have some very nice videos, etc. for kids. Just in the last week I put up several short videos with songs on geologic time. Six year old granddaughter gave a thumbs up to the 3rd one down - sounded more like the Disney channel to her. :)

A Beginners Guide to Fossil Hunting is a quick read and may help you in your quest.

I'm only 2 years into this, but having a BLAST!

Good luck with your fossil hunting!

Bev :D

The more I learn, I realize the less I know.
