How beautiful is Shark Bay? Words could not summarise. This is the one place where all my worries disappear, and I truly feel relaxed. I try and come here once a year.

Denham is a small town with a variety of eateries, a couple of shops, petrol stations and campsites. It is a good base from which to explore the area known as Shark Bay.the Peron National park and Monkey Mia are simply not to be missed although some more travelling is involved.Go there and sample the places- you will not be...

If you want a good place to rest the weary bones and also have as a base to visit places around,then Shark Bay is the place to stop.25 kilometers from Monkey Mia,also many other places to visit as well so keep your eyes open for those places that are new to others

Such a pretty place - stayed in the caravan park and enjoyed the time. You can swim in the Bay or the Lagoon and if you get the chance do a Didgeridoo Dreaming Night Tour!!! Monkey Mia is close by and the dolphins still come in - properly regulated to protect the dolphins

What an experience shark bay is. This was our first trip but it will not be our last. Kids loved it. We loved it. Always something to do and see. A long drive from Perth but certainly worth it.

Shark Bay is full of adventure! I would defiantly come here with a 4WD, a boat, fishing gear, beer and friends! There is so much to do and see in and out of town and is great for all ages! Dont just stay in the town, adventure off track !

There is good view spots like Eagle bluff, it feels really massive, but without whales, actually pretty boring. Flat and empty.
