Beautiful area.

This is a stunning location with lots to do and see. Leave plenty of time to explore all the area has to offer, scenery, wildlife and things to do.

Love Shark bay . The weather is mild even though it may be windy. Landing fees at Shark bay airport are expensive. Mostly a friendly place but let down by a few very casual businesses. Great facilities on the foreshore. Monkey Mia definitely the best place for service, food and accommodation with a view.

First visit to Denham, the small seaside town was lovely. The ocean was crystal clear and blue and the locals were very friendly and helpful. The dirk hartog 1616 celebration was fabulous. The free entertainment provided was wonderful especially The Lost Quays,our group of friends really enjoyed their foot tapping sea shanties especially when everyone sang along. Going on board...

Some highlights of my trip there included Moneky Mia, Eagle Bluff, Whalebone Bay, Shell Beach and the Stromatolites. Denham is the only town in the region It is a fair way from Geraldton, taking us just under 5 hours to get... More

The sleepy town of Denham over looks Shark Bay, as do a couple of lookouts coming into Denham. It is a pretty coastline that can be appreciated if you love nature, although it's not as spectacular as the reds of the Kimberleys or the creams and blues of the Kalbarri coastline. It is known as a windy spot, but we... More

As mentioned in other adds a lovely quiet town and has all your needs but is very pricey so take all your food if possible. The time we were there we had gorgeous weather low 20's but the wind was unbearable at times. It never let up so was unable to put our caravan awning up. Everyone was so friendly... More

Beautiful little town, very friendly and has almost everything you need. It is pricey so pack everything you would need. The wind is relentless but so refreshing.
