Stromatolites of Shark Bay, Denham

3.8
#5 of 7 in Parks in Denham
Discover Stromatolites of Shark Bay, peculiar rock-like structures formed by microbes over a period of almost 3,000 years. Shark Bay, a World Heritage Site, is one of only three places in the world where you can see these unusual microbial creations. Discovered in 1956 in an area containing some of the most varied and abundant living examples of these forms in the world, they represent the earliest signs of life on our planet. Stop by the bay’s popular Discovery Center, which provides interactive displays and comprehensive information about the region, and learn all about these "living fossils" and their contribution to the development of early life forms on Earth.
