Thylacoleo fossil + shadow - Victoria Fossil Cave
Both the Naracoorte and Riversleigh sites provide evidence separately of key stages in the evolution of the fauna of Australia - the world's most isolated continent. They are outstanding for the extreme diversity and the quality of preservation of their fossils and help us to understand the history of mammal lineages in modern Australia.
The Naracoorte Fossil Mammal Site was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1994.
The Naracoorte Fossil Mammal Site was one of 15 World Heritage places included in the National Heritage List on 21 May 2007.
