The Yea Flora Fossil Site is home to the fossils of ancient vascular land plants shown to be the oldest of their kind in the world. This finding by pioneering Australian scientist Isabel Cookson overturned long held scientific understandings of how and when plants evolved.
Visitors can learn about the fossils and their importance to Australia's geological history at the Yea Wetlands Interpretive Walk.
The Yea Flora Fossil Site was included in the National Heritage List on 11 January 2007.
