We were excited about seeing the oldest life forms on earth. We found them fascinating to look at, really quite incredible, and a great to take photos of. There was lots of interpretive signage but we didn't feel like we fully understood what we were...More

It was high tide & very windy when I was there making it difficult to see but just being surrounded by the oldest living creatures on earth is a privelige.

Make sure you pop in. A great triangular boardwalk keeps you dry and lets you enjoy these amazing structures. Keep an eye out for the fish and jellyfish. Lovely area for photography.

Learn about how these species produced oxygen and gave life to earth as we now know it. Fascinating. The scenery is gorgeous

The tide was coming in so we couldn't see these formations in their gloty?. However the board walk and interpretive sign explained the importance of this amazing place. The boardwalk there was well used

We found this place extremely interesting. Plenty of parking and all done very well. Lots of information and the boardwalk was excellent.

Whilst the Stromatolites were nice they were a quite "non exciting" tourist attraction. The Boardwalk was very well built and the signage was very informative, still worth a visit but not must do......
