Several years ago a collection of remarkable fossils was made
by Dr. Milligan, and subsequently lodged in the Society's
Museum. They were entirely, or in most part, obtained at
the Grordon river in Macquarie Harbor.
These fossils occur in lime-stone, but a glance is sufficient
to show their distinctness from those which are so abundantly
contained in the ordinary lime- stones of the colony, as at
Mount Wellington, Fingal, &c., &c.
|Additional Information:||Charles Gould (1834-1893), geological surveyor and Government gelogist. His surveys covered much of the colony and added greatly to geographical knowledge of western Tasmania. He named peaks along the West Coast Range after contemporary English scientists. In 1843 the Horticultural and Botanical Society of Van Diemen's Land was founded and became the Royal Society of Van Diemen's Land for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science in 1844. In 1855 its name changed to Royal Society of Tasmania for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science. In 1911 the name was shortened to Royal Society of Tasmania.|
