Monkey Mia is quite beautiful but unfortunately we didn't realise the best time is to go in the morning to feed the dolphins. If you are like us backpacking then money is really important and we spend it wisely. It cost $22 to enter. When...More

Lovely beach & swimming opportunity, good boating trips on offer. Adequate restaurant & bar. Superb views. Good, free dolphin wildlife videos running. Terrible strong winds & too cold to swim, 06/11/18.

The guide was well informed, the viewings were well organised and even the dolphins played their part. The icing on the cake was that my partner was selected to feed a dolphin

Be aware that you're supposed to pay the entry fee just to enter the car park. We visited around 4pm, all the dolphin feeding etc was obviously over which was fine but then why make people continue to pay through the day? It's a cute...More
