Overview

Monkey Mia is one of Western Australia's icon tourism experiences attracting around 100,000 visitors a year. Monkey Mia is one of the few locations in Australia to see wild dolphins, get close to them and have an opportunity to feed one. In addition, visitors can learn a lot about these endearing creatures at the Monkey Mia Visitor Centre, which provides information about the dolphins and other features of the surrounding Shark Bay Marine Park in the interpretation display or movie playing in the air-conditioned theatrette. Visitors are also able to buy unique gifts and souvenirs or book a boat charter in the Shark Bay Marine Park, enabling them to see not only dolphins but also dugongs, manta rays, turtles and other marine species. Similarly, local indigenous guides offer cultural tours of the reserve. Visitors can also walk the Wulyibidi Yaninyina walk trail to further explore the area.

Went to see the dolphins which were great at 7.45 am. Great fun watching them and also a Pelican trying to steal food! Great brekki afterwards. Then an emu walked through the park

Unfortunately when we went here the resort was under massive re-construction so the experience was not so good. We went in the morning and there wasn't too many people there. Only a couple of dolphins lolling about in the water.

It’s difficult to decide whether this place in a wildlife refuge or a tourist resort. It’s over-officious staff, lack of choice and lack of customer service suggests wildlife refuge, it’s prices and wanting money for everything suggests resort. This has been the low point in...More

We didn't stay at the resort, but just visited in the morning for the dolphin feed. It was very informative and the kids loved it. My daughter was lucky enough to get to picked to feed Puck, wonderful memories. Worth a trip for sure.
