Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

They are rather interesting and better than the more well know ones near monkey Mia as you can actually get close to them.

TOTALLY CLOSED OFF. Boardwalk to Stromatolites wrecked in a big storm, now totally fenced off as is the entire beach. Old telegraph station as is the little settlement area also totally closed and fenced off. A few people camping out in parking lot, not sure why. Bathrooms still working and some displays to read but that’s all. Pretty bleak. You won’t be spending more than a few minutes there should you decide to stop. No kidding.

Not much to see now. Quite damaged. Disappointed compared to shark Bay or mandurah. Nice walk around lake.

Worth a quick visit. Tide was low enough to see well. Liked that the indigenous storyline was added to sign posts

Where do I start with this amazing 3.5 billion year old life form and living fossil. Over 900 million years these amazing life forms converted our atmosphere primarily produced by active volcanoes from CO2 and SO2 with nitrogen to primarily Oxygen and Nitrogen, the reason we are alive and can survive on planet earth today. No people, as I say, we are living in a dynamic world and things do change but we are not around long enough to see it. How it was, now and how it will be in future will always be changing. Yes, would come back again just to say I have seen these amazing lifeforms. The walk way does give you a close view without damaging the fragile mounds.

These primitive life forms once covered the earth and have only survived in a few places by luck, in environment (very saline) that discourages most of the species.

At least these are accessible. Hamlin pools walkway has been closed since the cyclone and nothing is happening to repair it, a disgrace, as many people come to see these unique life forms and are so disappointed at Hamlin.

The stromatolites at Lake Thetis at Cervantes are fascinating to see. However, at the time we went they were under water, and, not having seen them before, it took us some time to work out what we were looking at. I understand certain times of year are best - early in the year?

The boardwalk around the lake is also worth doing if you have the time. Not long, and easy walking.

I recommend seeing these anytime of the year as it's easy to do if you are in the area, but if you have the opportunity to choose your time, I suggest researching when the best time is.

The stromatolites in Lake Thetis isn't too far from the carpark area. There is a viewing platform that is visible once you get on it. It is quite interesting to see these little structures. The lake levels also seem to change with the tide since it was all underwater when I was there. It was a nice experience and it is part of the Lake Thetis walk.
The carpark is quite large but there didn't seem to be any toilets though.
