Footprints of Australia’s Giants

The diprotodontids were the largest of all marsupials, giant herbivores that occurred throughout the Australian mainland, Tasmania and New Guinea. Their great size makes their footprints easily recognisable and their prints are known from the Lake Eyre Basin, the Lake Frome Basin and many places along the southern coast.
