Hamelin Pool Caravan Park - Hamelin Pool WA
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.

We stayed at the old Telegraph station in August 2013 for 2 or 3 nights. While there were some powered sites available, we chose to camp unpowered as all three vans set up with solar. It is a good base for exploring some of the local attractions such as the stromatolites, the aquarium and shark feeding, shell beach, shell block quarry and Denham. There is a rustic dining room at the rear of the small shop/reception area and they specialise in large hamburgers that were very tasty.
I love this place stayed a lot trish the owner has spent a lot of time doing it up
just put a pool in still the same price to stay might be going again in april
You may be right JIMBO but wasn't the expierienc worth it?
Last time I was there, the water to each site was not drinkable and you had to carry water from a tank. Thought the place a bit overpriced for facilities provided.
