Eagle Bluff - Shark Bay World Heritage Area
A Great way to spend Money
If the stromatolites could speak, I think they would be laughing at this.
Some Modern Additions
History in the Making
It takes a very very long time for these things to make any progress. Try another 60,000,000 years to see any changes here!
Shells are a way of Life
When concreted or "limed" together this was a great building tool, and also great dust suspression material. It is still used for that purpose today.
Postmaster's Residence - Hamelin Pool
The original residence is still standing, although extensively renovated and extended in recent years. I have spent many a night in here, most forgotten the morning after!
Hamlin Pool Weather Station
Every 3 hours, 7 days a week the readings had to be made in this Stevenson Screen. It dominated the live of all who lived at Hamelin Pool or the nearby homestead.
This old engine used to power our air compressor. It was used regularly as punctures were a daily occurrence at Hamelin. It was a real bitch to start, so we left it to the Jackaroos to start when required. They nicknamed it "Choog-a choog" which was the sound it made when in full working order powering the single cylinder high capacity air ompressor attached to it.
