Yes! Actually, my husband spent many years working as an archaeologist, so he knows where to look when we are on hikes. Our kids love when Daddy gets into "archaeologist mode".
I went to a very fancy Hotel in Sydney once, and in the (I think it was marbel?) was a Fossil ! in the ladies toilet.
I also had a friend who had I think slate? on her floor, and in the laundry....it had a fossil in bedded.
No I haven't but I hope to next time we go on holidays. In Richmond in Northern Queensalnd, Kronosaurus Corner takes fossil hunting tours. I really want to go on one of these.
No. Fossil hunting tours sound exciting though.

Years ago, when I was travelling through Coober Pedy in outback South Australia I found the opalised fossil of a shell. Naturally, I was very excited at the time! I have no idea how old it was, but it was definitely pretty ancient....I've since heard that opalised fossils are quite common out there.
yes I have a petrified wood one as a back door stop
At the junction of the Three Gorges in Karajini NP/WA, I stood on rocks that had originally been on the sea floor. They had wave ripples fossilised on their surface. Millions of years' old & had been uplifted due geologic process, a few thousand feet. Just awesome! Gave me goosebumps to think of how OLD this rock was! Loved it!
Yes - my son is a geologist and he tells me the history and how many eras it has gone through before landing on our doorstep. I also wear my late husband's signet ring which is made from a trilobite surrounded by silver.
I found an opalised fossil at Coober Pedy many years ago. Although the opal in it was just the cheap 'potch', it was really beautiful.
