I had never heard of thrombolites and their role since creation in producing oxygen and hence life. It was interesting to see these from a boardwalk at the lake
The lake is not particularly scenic but worth a visit if you are nearby
A really lovely, serene location with a jetty that walks you over the top of the Thrombolites so you get a really good view. The lake is pristine and full of bird life. Photos from the jetty are also very beautiful!

After visiting Cape Peron, normally tourists and visitors alike will proceed to Lake Clifton which is about 2 hours away.
Here, we want to see the thrombolites. They are in fact living fossils of rock-like structures, sitting in shallow water along the shoreline.
