Overview

Monkey Mia is one of Western Australia's icon tourism experiences attracting around 100,000 visitors a year. Monkey Mia is one of the few locations in Australia to see wild dolphins, get close to them and have an opportunity to feed one. In addition, visitors can learn a lot about these endearing creatures at the Monkey Mia Visitor Centre, which provides information about the dolphins and other features of the surrounding Shark Bay Marine Park in the interpretation display or movie playing in the air-conditioned theatrette. Visitors are also able to buy unique gifts and souvenirs or book a boat charter in the Shark Bay Marine Park, enabling them to see not only dolphins but also dugongs, manta rays, turtles and other marine species. Similarly, local indigenous guides offer cultural tours of the reserve. Visitors can also walk the Wulyibidi Yaninyina walk trail to further explore the area.

We went for a walk along the beach and by chance, came across Henk and Kinka, who run the Sharkbay Camel Safaris. At first we thought $45 p/p was too much, but then we thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed....More

Went to Monkey Mia today as a group of 10 of us were staying at Denham for a week. The plan was to go there for a meal and a few beers at the pub, we were not interested in doing the whole "Dolphin Thing"...More

Apart from the town of Denham itself we began to feel that this area was a let down. The Dolphin feeding was really boring (the ranger had no character at all). It started late, we eventually made our way to the water to just watch...More

The dolphins are very interesting, it's great to see them demonstrating their natural hunting behaviours as the feeding is only a treat and doesn't interfere with their main diet. The staff are quite informative too and seem rather passionate.
