Australia - 2005-06-01 - 2 - Hamelin Pool Marine Park - Stromatolites

After leaving Kalbarri that morning we had to drive a few hundred kilometers before getting to Hamelin Pools. Here is what lonely planet has to say about this stop, "A marine reserve containing the world's best-known colony of stromatolites. These microbes are almost identical to organisms that existed 1900 million years ago & evolved into more complex life. They are extremely fragile...". So it might not be the most exciting stop ever but it is always good to see where things came from. The area itself actually looks very interesting & the stromatolites were uniquely colored, especially the red ones which were dead. We also saw numerous fish & birds while on the boardwalk. It has educational information as you walk along which provides greater insight into what you are looking at. It was a nice stop to do, so many people skip this & head straight to Monkey Mia to see the dolphins.
