Shark Bay region

Home to WA’s Monkey Mia dolphins and Shark Bay World Heritage Area

A wonderland of world-class natural attractions, the region of Shark Bay in WA (Western Australia) is known as the Shark Bay World Heritage Area.

Beyond white sandy beaches, rust-red sand dunes and WA’s famous Shell Beach, a truly amazing variety of marine life thrives in the clear turquoise waters of Shark Bay on Australia’s Coral Coast. Meet the friendly Monkey Mia dolphins. Marvel at the Hamelin Pool stromatolites. Or spot dugongs, turtles, dolphins, manta rays, humpback whales and southern right whales from the many coastal vantage points.

Located approximately 830 kilometres north of Perth, you can take a two and a half hour flight to Monkey Mia airport, which is a 10 minute drive from the popular WA holiday destinations of Denham and Monkey Mia. Each provides a perfect base from which to explore the rugged beauty of Australia’s Shark Bay
