John Rawlins is fascinated by fossils. He has been collecting them in the Longreach region for years.
It's his latest passion.
His fossicking habit started with rocks and quickly developed into a love of "fossils from the inland sea". He started finding sharks teeth, shells and ammonites and was hooked.
John thinks he's spent almost a year worth of days wondering the paddocks in Western Queensland... searching.
He is inspired by the way the earth has been created.
All the fossils in his Longreach yard are around 98 million years old - or close to. "What's a millions years or two?" he tells us with a grin.
One of the biggest revelations for John has been to recently discover his yard has purpose and that with it, he's more than just a collector of rocks, machinery and fossils. He is a sculptor.
