Beautiful Scenery

This bay is worth visiting if it is convenient; otherwise, it is a good drive out of the way. The whole area is beautiful.

Shark Bay is always worth a visit. There is so much to see and do. We are camping travelers and come here regularly because it is just a 5 hour drive away from where we live. We love the board walk, Ocean park, Monkey Mia, Francois Peron, Steep Point...simply everything. We fish, SUP, kayak, sail, snorkel, kitesurf...all with little kids.

Gorgeous deserted beaches, surrounded by wildlife. Fun off-road tracks in the area to take your Jeep. Kids were amazed at the area, splendid in its isolation and its natural and unique perfection.

Fantastic place if you love the environment. Interesting sights to visit..Especially loved Ocean Park for its aquarium tour and food in the attached restaurant. We visited twice for the mixed platter. Best food on our trip so far and very reasonably priced.

The scenery is a bit like going to the ends of the world - wild open ocean and plunging red cliffs, with pockets of clear blue pools interspersed with semi-desert scrub. And few humans. Apart from dolphins we saw rays, roos, emus, quokkas, a wide variety of birds, and even an echidna! Do remember to bring your fly nets as... More

Money very well spent. 3 1/2hours up close and personal with the marine residents of Monkey Mia. I would definitely recommend this experience to all. Greg is extremely knowledgeable and makes everyone feel welcome. Thank you.
