Monkey Mia


Best known as the home of the Monkey Mia dolphins, Western Australia’s Monkey Mia Reserve is a must-see for families and nature lovers alike. It’s located on the eastern shore of Peron Peninsula, about 23 kilometres from the town of Denham in the Shark Bay World Heritage Area.

Famous for their almost daily ritual of swimming to shore to interact with humans, the dolphins of WA’s Monkey Mia attract thousands of visitors to Australia’s Shark Bay region every year.

As the bottlenose dolphins are wild, numbers and the exact time of their visit varies. However they usually visit the shore up to three times a day and more frequently in the mornings. Seven dolphins regularly visit the beach, with up to 20 others visiting occasionally, often sighted only three or four times a year.

Protected by WA’s Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC), the dolphins are well looked after. You may get the opportunity to feed the dolphins under the supervision of a national park ranger, though this privilege is not guaranteed. Access to the reserve is subject to a DEC National Park fee.
