Lake Clifton and the Thrombolites


This, my friends, is a little place called Lake Clifton. It features these tiny oval shaped rocks called Thrombolites and is located not too far south of Mandurah. What’s so special about rocks you say? Well, they’re not just rocks. They’re actually fossils

, believed to be about 3.5 billion years old!


Although the lake looks mighty nice for a little dip in your favourite swimmers, PLEASE do not give in to temptation. The lake shore environment is fragile and many microscopic community’s reside here.


There’s a viewing platform sufficient enough to watch a bloody beautiful sunset from, and a few trails worth exploring. There’s many other sections of lakes down in the Yalgorup National Park but this is by far my favourite.
