Fossil Rock

A fossil leaf deposit with particularly fine detail has been preserved in Dalton, located just 10 minutes north of Gunning. This 40 million year old fossil can be seen under the shelter in the park along Oolong Creek. A little known fact is that the town is situated on a fault in the earth's crust and receives minor but persistent tremors.
