Product Description

A Traveller's Guide to the East Pilbara of Western Australia

The east Pilbara region in the northwest of Western Australia has one of Earth's best-preserved remnants of ancient crust - crust that is more than 3 500 000 000 years old! The book takes you on a journey through this iconic ancient land. You will see remnants of gigantic volcanic eruptions, rocks virtually untouched by time, the famed 'Marble Bar', and the most ancient traces of life on Earth - stromatolites.

All sites are close to the road, readily accessible, and located for you by GPS. Come travel these six trails, radiating out from Marble Bar, and delve back into Deep Time ...
