Ediacara Hills

Fossil Spriggina; one of the many fossils found at the Ediacara Hills

Ediacara Hills (/ˌdiˈækərə/ EE-dee-AK-ər-ə), also known as Ediacaran Hills, are a range of low hills in the northern part of the Flinders Ranges of South Australia, around 650 kilometres (400 mi) north of the state capital of Adelaide. They are within the Nilpena Ediacara National Park.

The hills are known for being the location where significant trace fossils of a group of previously unknown lifeforms were discovered, and have given their name to the geological period known as the Ediacaran.
