‪A step into the origins of life‬
أبريل 2021
‪We drove south from Mandurah on Old Coast Road and then we took Mount John Rd at the end of which there is a small car park. No entrance ticket is required to enter this sector of the Yalgorup National Park. Next to the parking area there are toilets, picnic tables and an extremely interesting information shelter about the thrombolites and the local fauna. A short flat path leads to a wooden boardwalk which allows an excellent view of the thrombolites. Being a sunny day what we saw was an infinity of roundish white rocks that formed what could seem a reef along the edge of the lake whose clear waters were of an intense blue. A very different view from the dark stromatolites seen in Shark Bay even if they both are microorganisms that cluster together to form rock like formations. The thrombolites appeared on earth hundreds of millions of years ago as one of the earliest forms of life and now there are only a very few remaining colonies on the whole earth. The one that is surviving in Clifton Lake is one of the largest. Furthermore this lake provides a sanctuary for migrating birds, but being April, we could only observe resident birds like Australian shelduck (Tadorna tadornoides) and welcome swallow (Hirundo neoxena). Back at the information shelter we started walking the 5km Lake Clifton Walk Trail. This flat trail takes you along the edge of the lake but the vegetation does not allow the view of the lake while walking on the path. We went back before completing the path disappointed by the fact that we could not see the lake and the absolute absence of fauna given the late morning time. This visit at the Lake Clifton thrombolites was extremely interesting for us and we would like to recommend it to those who are in this part of WA.‬

‪Last year we visited Lake Thetis at Cervantes and viewed the stromatolites, fascinating structures of micro organisms in the saline waters. On this occasion we looked forward to viewing the thrombolites of Lake Clifton. I assumed that the lake was saline and surprised that signage indicated that it is a freshwater lake and that the thrombolites formed from freshwater springs that are high in calcium carbonate.
I saw little difference between them and the stromatolites, although viewing a cross section. In any event, they are impressive stretching along the shoreline from the boardwalk. Water levels seemed low a nd the majority of the structures above the waterline. Good information bay at the beginning of the boardwalk with adjacent picnic tables and ablution block. The 5km walk was left to another day.‬

‪Dropped in to see the thromblites today with some friends. It was easy to find the lake and the path and jetty to view the thrombolites. The signs and quality of the information was excellent. Great for a 30minute biology lesson! ‬

‪Don't get TripAdvisor to map you there as it is wrong today (mapped to Lake Clifton rd). Its in the lake on the edge of the national park. Google maps was right.‬

‪Great viewing platform‬

‪Great viewing platform for the thrombolites. We have visited Lake Thetis before but the thrombolites here were much bigger and more of them. Some informative signs around were a great bonus.‬

‪Not many people stopped and took the short walk to the viewpoint but it’s nice to learn about those thrombolites and see what they look like. Lots of birds around as well. ‬

‪Limestone-looking domes‬
فبراير 2020
‪One of the closest examples of these "living fossils" to Perth. There is limited car parking from where it is only a short easy walk to the board-walk/jetty that takes you over the lake and offers great views of these white, limestone-looking mini domes about a metre in diameter. For those with an interest in natural sciences, have a look.‬

‪Came out here with my husband, the area is beautiful. It was very windy however.
There isn't too much parking available but there is a toilet block and some tables for your picnic. The walk to the thrombolites is short and easy going
Information plaques are located on the boardwalk
Worth a stop!‬
