  • Visit to be reserved for people who are interested in the origin of life on Earth. We have the opportunity to see living fossils who are originally of the oxygen on Earth. We have also the possibility to see some stromatolites on many sites in Australia (including a small lake to Cervantes, which is a few km from the Pinnacles desert). On the bridge, but also at the beginning of the market of 200 m, the Park has many signs of explanations. We also had the chance to see many birds and kangaroos on the forest road leading to the site.

  • Lake Clifton is one of the few places in the world to feature thrombolites - living rocks. It is a bit strange it is not well publicized- but maybe is better to keep this unique attraction away from t...  more »

  • Amazing day out seeing ancient thrombolites. There's a great walkway and jetty over the lake. To get to Lake Clifton it's just off the Old Coast Road, 187 Mount John Road, Lake Clifton - up over the hill towards the coast and keep driving to the end. It's best to see the thrombolites on a clear, still day at low tide. There's also a 5km walk trail around the lake but we didn't bother because you see hundreds of thrombolites, fish, black swans and we even saw several kangaroos near the carpark. There's also a toilet block near the carpark.
  • Viewing the sunset here is really spectacular! When my family visited, there was no one else here and we had the whole jetty to the thrombolites and ourselves to admire the sunset! The jetty is only a short walk from the car park, but do remember to bring a torch if you're going for the sunset.
  • Finding the enterance from main road is difficult, no signboard. BUT once there, you will see mother nature creation unfolds before your eyes. Living organisms, similar to corals, builds the coast & eco system in that area. Well worth the efforts getting there
  • Small place. But beautifully crafted by Mother Nature. Must dropby.
  • Unfortunately our trip here was ruined by two of our cars being broken into , windows smashed and personal items stolen. We were only gone for about 10 minutes. Apparently there were signs warning that it was a high theft area however these signs had been stolen. If you plan on going here don't leave anything in the car! It's sad that there are people like that in this world which has now ruined what would have been a nice visit to a historical place.
