Great couple of hours on the beach led by Felicity, looking for fossils and seeing dinosaur footprints and footcasts.. Weather was amazing and quite a few people found fossils and one dinosaur bone. Recommended.

Great couple of hours spent with the very knowledgeable and enthusiastic Felicity. We came away with interesting rocks including some fossilised dinosaur bone. The teenagers even admitted they had enjoyed it more than they expected to. Thank you!
