Hamelin Pool is home to the most diverse and abundant examples of living stromatolites in the world. These creatures are monuments to life on Earth over 3500 million years ago; a time when no other complex creatures were present on the planet.
You can visit these stromatolites easily at Hamelin Pool where a boardwalk provides easy access to their marine environment. Other visitor facilities nearby include the Old Hamelin Pool Telegraph Station, built in 1884 as part of the vital communication line between Perth and Roebourne. The original building is now a museum housing many fascinating artefacts.
It is possible to stay overnight at Hamelin Pool Caravan Park located at the Old Telegraph Station. Toilets, showers, water and kiosk facilities are available for people using the campground. Bookings can be made by telephoning the park on 08 9942 5905 and please tell the park that you found them on Caravan Park Photos.
