The Ediacaran is the only geological period named after a region in Australia. The Flinders Ranges reveals a diversity of Ediacaran fossils within its rocky layers, providing evidence of the first complex life. The multi-celled organisms seen are the oldest known, crucial in the story of life evolving.
