Hidden away is a well hidden secret. The thrombolites and stromalytes over 2,000 years old. There is an eco walkway so you do not harm these unusual rocks. A hidden secret, do go and explore.

A picturesque lake, with a very pleasant short walk alongside it, returning via a ridge giving views over the lake. And of course there are the ancient thrombolites to see, which are well worth the 5-10 minute diversion off the main road.

Terrific thrombolites -in a tranquil setting. I had seen these on a travel programme and was thrilled to be able to see them in the "flesh". To me they were magic and amazing and their role in the creation of life was awe inspiring. Take...More

Thrombolites might not be the most spectacular life form but the temporal context makes them rather special. Despite all the hysteria of climate change and the impact of humans on the environment the thrombolites have survived and survived. A must see.

Great scenery and the thrombolites are astounding! These things are 2,000 years old and are descendants of the first life on earth. They are not only responsible for producing the oxygen that promoted early life but are also thought to be responsible for the formation...More

We went to Lake Clifton mainly to see the thrombolites. My GPS was unable to find the location and the small, inconspicuous sign boards on the old coast road, did not help much. However, when I finally managed to reach the thrombolites, I found it...More

Lake Clifton is an amazing area. The lake and wet land areas are just a beautiful sight and the Thrombolites are an interesting sight. I got a little fed up of the flies on the walk and wished I had some repellent but go prepared...More
