Jan 18, 2006 - Kalbarri to Monkey Mia

It was a full morning's drive to Monkey Mia but we did stop along the way at Hamelin Pools to see the Stromatolites. Hamelin Pools is a Marine Reserve containing the best known colony of these microbes. They are extremely fragile but for you to get a good look at them they have built a broadwalk you can walk out on. We then visited Shell Beach - made up of cockleshells. The water is only knee deep for at least 100m out. The contrast of white and blue was pretty spectacular ... you can see how I spoil it in the photos!! I might mention that...
