Riversleigh a great place to visit.

Informative boards and displays. The self guided walk is well worth the climb to the top of the site for the expansive views of the surrounding country.

the geology is awesome, but not spectacular to behold. I rather enjoyed the view across the landscape... and I will not forget the story of the Lady who broke up a cattle muster by wandering to take photos.

We took a guided tour from Adel Grove in hope of learning a lot about the Fossil fields and the area. Geoff the guide was great with his knowledge of the area and history but it could not make up for the lack of fossil left. I suggest if you driving by stop and have a look but don't spend... More

This is a must see destination. We took our on road caravan from Gregory Downs to Adels Grove. No problems with the gravel road. We did day trips to Lawn Hill. There are excellent information panels about the flora and fauna. Then we hired a double canoe for $50 for 2 hours. We paddled to the Indarri Falls. You could... More

Forget the Fossil Fields for a while..... do yourself a favour and walk/drive or better still canoe up to the Indarri Falls. Park, walk past explanatory displays down to the river bank to the canoe hire. A simple canoe trip turned into one of the most magnificent natural sights I've ever seen anywhere. When you turn the corner of the... More

Being an amateur paleontologist I was looking forward to this visit. Very disappointed at what actually saw. The tour (by a guide who doubles in the bar at night) started in a constructed "cave" with models of some of the earlier megafuana on the walls. Here we were given the background of the various finds and also the various different... More

There is so much for all of us to learn about the fossil fields and the Dinosaurs, this venue is just the start of your tour through the Dinosaurs area, and well worth having a guide to point out the fossils.

It is an easy walk round the site and there is lots of information about the many fossils. We are not experts in fossils by any means but enjoyed learning about this amazing place.

This was a return visit after saying back in 1986 we must return! Here in 2013 the natural beauty remains but there is now a large impressive Ranger building and toilet facilities. We enjoyed a walk to Duwadarri lookout followed by a canoe trip to the Indarri Falls. There is something magical about Boodjamulla National Park. Hopefully it's not harmed... More

Taking a two hour trip by canoe down the gorge is just wonderful. Scenery spectacular. After about 30 mins you reach the Indarri Falls and a lovely swimming hole. Spend time here or drag your canoe along a short walk to the next gorge. $50 for a double canoe for two hours. The walks are also very good, we did... More
