Shell Beach, made up of lots and lots of... ...these little shells (up to 10 metres deep) Spit made of shells near White Bluff Living Stromatolites at Hamelin Pool, over a period of 2 billion years stromatolites increased the Earth's oxygen levels from 1% to 20%, enabling life as we know it to evolve, and they're still knocking around after 3.5 billion years, cool eh! Dead stromatolites being eroded, there are several theories as to their red colour, but no one is really sure Stromatolites are extremely slow growing, these cart tracks were made over 60 years ago, and are still clearly visible Friendly pelican at Monkey Mia One of Monkey Mia's visiting Indo-Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins
