landmark

Shark Bay is home to some unique and spectacular flora and fauna which led to it being declared a 2.2 million hectare World Heritage Area in 1991. For 3 billion years the only forms of life on Earth were Stromatolites, colonies of cyanobacteria. Hamelin Pool in Shark Bay is one the few places in world where these oldest of lifeforms still flourish. Sure the Stromatolites at Shark Bay are 'only' 2000 - 3000 years old but their heritage can be traced back to 1.9 billion years ago making them one of the longest continuing biological lineages known.
