The 127,000-hectare (310,000-acre) nature reserve boasts the most diverse and abundant examples of living marine stromatolites, or 'living fossils', in the world, monuments to life on Earth over 3,500 million years BP.

On our way to Denham in Shark Bay we detoured to visit the Hamelin Pool Telegraph Station and Shell Block Quarry. First stop was to look at the Stromatolites - living bacteria forming colonies in the water that contain microbes dating back millions of years. A boardwalk has been built over the water to allow viewing of these fragile formations as they take years to grow and can be damaged easily. There are only a couple of places in the world where living marine stromatolites are known to exist. There are wonderful signs along the boardwalk that provide information on this rare formation.

The car parking area near the stromatolite boardwalk has plenty of space to park when towing the caravan. This is not far from the Shell Block Quarry, Hamlin Pool Telegraph Station, caravan park and cafe.
