Blue Beach tetrapods are the oldest animals with backbones ever discovered, creatures that crawled from the sea and began the evolution of amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals  The fossils on the beach are 350 million years old, from the early Carboniferous period.
The Blue Beach Fossil Museum lies at the beginning of the pathway to the beach, and is a must see for visitors. In the museum you can see the world’s oldest collection of fossil footprints, and get help identifying the many fossil finds that litter the beach. Common finds include wave ripples, worm tubes (above), fish scales, and dung.
