Kimberley fossil tracks are Australia's 'Jurassic Park'
Written on the 29 March 2017
Scientists have described a remarkable collection of dinosaur tracks on beaches in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.
More than 20 different types of fossil footmarks have been captured in sandstone rock.
Some are over 1.5m in size, recording the movement of sauropods - the giant beasts with long necks and tails.
The trackways, many only visible at low tide, were "globally unparalleled", claimed the lead scientist involved.
Steve Salisbury called the 25km-long coastline collection Australia's own Jurassic Park.
