World famous Pinnacles
these amazing natural limestone structures, some standing as high as 5 metres, were formed approx 25,000 to 30,000 years ago, after the sea receded and left deposits of sea shells. Over time, the coastal winds removed the surrounding sand, leaving the pillars exposed to the elements.

 Sunrise - Lake Thetis, Cervantes
Lake Thetis, one of only 5 places in the world where living "Stromatolites", the oldest known living form of life on earth, can be found. Fossil remains of these organisms have been dated back to about 3.6 million years and are believed to be the basis of life as we know it.
