Lake Clifton Thrombolites. || Discover a Natural Wonder.

Lake Clifton is a small town in the Peel Region in Western Australia. This town has a natural wonder which has been preserved and is free to admire.

The thrombolites are fragile and there has been an observation walkway which allows you to view the natural phenomenon without causing harm to the structures.

The walkway is a 600 meter return loop from the car park and offers spectacular views of the thrombolites and the lake.

If you have time to spare, there is a 5km loop walking trail. This loop is inland trail and allows you to walk on a path through the trees.

Depending on the time of year, you may be escorted along the trail by the birds (flying among the trees) or even have the chance to see the burrowing lizards who have dug burrows on the edges of the path. (My mum and I walked one kilometre or so down the path hoping to have a better vantage point of the thrombolites but I could only see the lake through the trees.)

If you’re looking for a day trip with a twist, then a drive out to Lake Clifton should be considered. If you are driving from Perth, you can always make a detour and drive into Mandurah on your way to or from or just enjoy the drive, the choice is yours.
