Sun Pictures
Broome · The world’s oldest outdoor cinema still screens multiple films per night.

Tessellated Pavement
Eaglehawk Neck · This plateau came into being when pressure at the Earth’s crust caused cracks to appear
in the rock at perpendicular angles, creating a tiled effect.

herd fellow whales.

Hamelin Pool Stromatolites
Gascoyne · The rock-like formations in the shallow waters of Hamelin Pool Marine Nature Reserve are not

billion years ago.
