Fossils of Central Victoria
« on: March 14, 2019, 05:35:50 PM »
G'day everyone!

I know most people do not like giving away their spots but was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for fossil hunting in the Humevale Formation in central Victoria. Is there any exposures/road cuttings that I can check out?

Thanks,
Dan

Is this the trilobite deposits?
If so I don't know any specific places but I know they used to be collected somewhere near Darraweit Guim, also the Kinglake tip, though that was half a century ago so likely a long way under a lot of landfill by now. Also there's supposed to be an outcrop in a road cutting on the Northern Highway beside Mt Ida at Heathcote, this is the only one I have had a go at finding but with zero success.
Graptolites at Bendigo I can help you with.
