Got up early today, jumped in the car and headed north up the Wanneroo Highway to Yanchep National Park then across to the Brand Highway, then further north to Cervantes. We stopped for some lunch, before driving in to the Nambung National Park to drive around the awesome Pinnacles. Quite spectacular. Pity about the weather ! We got a few dry minutes to get out, wander around and take some photos.
After a while looking around Nambung National Park, we headed down the road to Lake Thetis to see the Stromatolites. Round chunks of rock in a lake is how some might describe them ! They are actually the fossilised remains of a colony or mat of “cyanobacteria” – commonly (and mistakenly) known as “blue-green algae”.
Finally, we drove up to Jurien Bay, had a look around, and then headed back to Perth along the Brand Highway. Got back just after 7pm – quite a long trip.
