AUSTRALIA: Pleistocene

Australia has many interesting fossil sites. However we did not find many Pleistocene deposits, but believe that near Gladstone in West Australia there are Pleistocene (or maybe Holocene) coral reefs. We collected there a few shells, which we show you here. The Pliocene, Miocene and Oligocene deposits are more interesting.
