We were delight to have the Useless Loop Primary School visit Hamelin Station Reserve earlier this month.

Useless Loop is a small isolated community in Shark Bay - its nearest town is Denham (220km drive away). Its small school of lovely kids made the trek to Hamelin to see their region's unique World Heritage Stromatolites and to enjoy a day of exploring the beautiful Hamelin Outback Station Stay.

The Hamelin Outback Station Stay team ensured the children had a great day - taking them to the Stromatolites and Shell Quarry, then back to the Station Stay for a walk around the Hamelin Lake and walking track.

The children had their lunch at the Station Stay and then explored the shearing shed. Jackie Mahood (Station Stay Manager) said "an enjoyable day was had by all and we hope they will visit us again soon".

Hamelin Outback Station Stay is a fantastic and accessible place for people to connect with nature and conservation. We look forward to many more community engagement opportunities!
