If you are considering visiting one of the world's most amazing attractions; Monkey Mia, then pause no longer. This place will not fail to keep you entertained and will keep you busy lifting your jaw from the floor. Here are some of our favourite things to do in this beautiful part of Western Australia
Day Trip to Shell Beach
Just a 50 minutes drive south of Monkey Mia is the chance to see one of only two beaches on Earth where shells replace sand. Shell Beach is picture perfect and is a stunning natural wonder formed from billions of tiny shells. What better place to pack a picnic and prepare a days worth of sun soaking and swimming in pristine waters. Shell Beach is truly unrivalled.
Placed in between Monkey Mia and Shell Beach, Denham offers an array of exciting tourist attractions such as adventure, history and the perfect starting place to experience Shark Bay. You can visit Shark Bay World Heritage Discovery Centre to learn about Shark bay's diverse ecology and culture. This place is perfect for sunny strolls along the Shark Bay World Heritage drive, or even walk the streets to discover the marvelling buildings made from the shells of Shell Beach.
Feed the local pod of bottlenose dolphins
One of the most amazing interactions in the area is sharing a beach with Bottlenose Dolphins. Although spotting these amazing creatures is not abnormal, it is most certainly quite unique to see them visit the beach in knee high water for a morning snack. Here you will get to see them gracefully approach the shore and interact with the guides that feed them. Nothing short of amazing!
Visit the oldest living fossils
The Hamelin Pool Stromatolites are the oldest and largest living fossils on Earth. Only a 30 minute drive from Monkey Mia, the rare Stromatolites are located in the shallow waters of Hamelin Pool.There are beautiful walkways and informational displays that explain just how incredible these fossils are.
