Petrified (fossil) forest of Lune River, Tasmania 

My video on the fossil remains of an ancient forest in Lune River,  Tasmania. Fossilized tree branches, ferns and beautiful agates are buried within the soft gravel ground, and there are dedicated blocks of the forest where public people can go and find some of these neat specimens. In this video I briefly describe how the fossilized forest formed and how to get (i.e., fossick) for them yourself! This is based on my post A fossilzed (petrified) forest in the ground.
