These fossils, which can be seen in 10-metre high cliffs of sandstone and limestone, mainly comprise of ancient tree trunks and a myriad of fossils. As the fossils may go unnoticed by the untrained eye, interested parties are encouraged to embark on a beach tour with an informative guide.

Port Edward Reviews

Port Edward
After seeing how dirty and run down Port St. John was, I am so happy I had picked Port Edward to stay. The town has a lot of western influence, was clean and people were friendly. The beach in our area was nice but not able to do a long walk on the beach due to rocky coast line. It was a good overnight stop, would not stay for long.

Port Edward
Excellent and one does not get "ripped off" for being on holiday. All facilities were good and very reasonably priced including the Vet - Dr. Watson - who we used for our four legged child and we can highly recommend him.
