Lost Atlantis

Did you ever visit or work at Atlantis Marine Park in Two Rocks in the 1980's? When King Neptune's reign came to an end in 1990, it was a sad day for his subjects and fans of the once popular marine park.

Take a moment to see these NEW images of Atlantis in its prime, from the State Library of WA’s collection – and the gigantic limestone statue of King Neptune. 
What are your memories of Atlantis?

A long project to rehabilitate the Park's dolphins for release into the wild followed the closure of the marine park. Lessons were learned that are still applicable to marine mammal releases today. Kelly Waples worked on the project team and documented her experience.
