If you would like to get away from the world why not head to a World Heritage Area. I was fortunate enough to sail around the region and enter bays with no one else in site. Grab your camp gear and get out there plenty of stations you can enter after permission from owners and get away from life..... let... More

A fantastic 2.5 hours aboard with Greg and his crew. They were very informative about the area and sea life pointing out all seen by them from their advantageous positions (although we didn't see a dugong).. However a highlight was the sponged nose dolphin - unbelievable. Thanks also for looking after my mate's 94 year old mother - she loved... More

I first visited Denham, Shark Bay about 20 years ago when the main street was just a dusty road and beach was so close to it. I returned in 2009 and was amazed at the changes. Bitumen road, lovely grassed area on the water front, with a playground for the children and clean barbecue facilities. The attractions had also been... More

We have taken our chidren to the Shark Bay area 6 times in the past 10 years. It has something for everyone with unique wildlife on land and in the water. Monkey Mia is about 30kms away on a good sealed road with a nice resort and a great caravan park if you are camping. We absolutely love this part... More

Don't miss Shark Bay. It's like nowhere you have ever been. I particularly loved Monkey Mia and Oceans Park Aquarium.

Relaxed and lay back sort of place - it is really all happening in Denham, but who would remember Denham - Shark Bay sounds so much more fascinating. We had fun and enjoyed the close by tour it has on offer.

The dolphin feeding was very contrived and the most exciting thing we saw was an emu stealing a scone from someone in the cafe.
