    Does anyone know of a physical location in or close to Sydney that would sell good quality real fossils or alternatively a reputable online retailer.

    Last Christmas present to finalise and this one is driving me nuts.

    Hey Chilli, there's a place in Newtown I saw a few weeks ago, I'll try to find the name.

    Cheers @Azazel . Newtown is one of my work locations so that would be handy.

    I've had a bit of a looksie on Google St View, I think it's next door to the Pastizzi place at 523 King St, used to be Furr Hair I think. The other place next to it is an old 2nd hand place.

    i was over at Parklea Markets yesterday, they had a 1' triolobyte and a few others. There's also a place over at Crows Nest which does the rounds of the Spring Markets and a few other locations as well.

    One of my daughters is into rocks, oddly. There is a shop in Marrickville she goes to all the time. It's on Illawarra Road. I went there with her last week and they had a great fossil of a fish. I really liked it, oddly. They would have other stuff, too. It's such a strange place for that shop to be.
