The incredible discovery of a living fossil from the age of the dinosaurs. In mid-1994 a National Parks & Wildlife ranger abseiling in the Wollemi Wilderness outside Sydney, came upon an extraordinary sight: a canyon filled with massive pines. What he accidentally discovered has become one of the century's most important botanical finds. The ancient pines were thought to have become extinct millions of years ago.
