worthwhile meeting our past

Going her is meeting our past. Great experience. The coast is good to look at as well. So, go there.

The Hamelin Pool Marine Park is a National Park with billions of years of history and well worth the visit. We enjoyed photographing and wandering backward and forward spotting all the little life forms in and around. Definitely worth a visit.

Interesting area with history from when people first settled in the region, worth the visit but I would not make the trip there just to see this reserve alone.

This was the first attraction we visited while we were driving towards Denham, we parked the car at the Telegraph Station and did the Boolagoorda Trail. It was noon time, sunny and quite a long walk towards the Stromatolite Boardwalk but on the way, we...More
