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!

This is a great stop, perhaps on the way to Margaret River. It is a short distance off the coast road and also a good toilet stop. Once there, the thrombolires and the jetty for viewing are amazing. Their history is well explained and well...More

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.

Had never heard of thrombolites so was keen to go and view same at Lake Clifton. We’ll sign posted, easy car parking, good track and Jetty - with lots of instructional/informative signage. Really glad I took the time to have a look.

Take a walk along the boardwalk to see these. Some of the earliest forms of life on earth. Fascinating, read about the history of these.
