ABOUT THE BAY
Shark Bay is recognised as
one of the most remarkable
places on Earth.
Uninhibited freedom and adventure are waiting for you in Shark Bay, where rugged landscape meets calm seas brimming with marine life.
Shark Bay spans a vast 2.3 million hectares of wild natural beauty. All year round, sunny days, fresh sea breezes and a mix of temperate and tropical waters make this a perfect escape.
Explore inlets, islands and beaches, enjoy swimming and snorkelling, or join a cruise to spot the famous dolphins and dugongs.
Look out for loggerhead turtles too, and if you’re here between July and October, you might even be lucky enough to spot migrating humpback whales.
On dry land, you can experience the indigenous culture of Gutharraguda (Shark Bay), explore the fascinating stromatolites and the surreal beauty of Shell Beach, discover some of the rare plants and animals found only in this area, and revel in WA’s longest wildflower season.
We look forward to welcoming you to Shark Bay!
