In Detail
The stromatolite formation still survive from the time when life began on earth. The water in Hamelin Pool is twice as salty as usual sea water. Tidal currents and wave activity determine the size and shape of the stomatolites. A boardwalk has been constructed to preserve the formations and provide a better view.
