Shark Bay
Today Shark Bay is recognised as one of the most remarkable places on Earth. This amazing area was placed on the World Heritage list in 1991, and is one of the places in the world that satisfy all four natural criteria for listing. They are:

Major stages of the world's evolutionary history
Geological and biological processes
Natural beauty
Threatened species

Visitors are encouraged to look closely at Shark Bay's unusual natural beauty. Plan to spend time exploring the pristine bays, inlets and islands. Discover for yourself some of the rare plants, mammals and birds found only in Shark bay.

The shallow waters of the Shark Bay Marine Park abound with a myriad of marine life. Vast seagrass meadows are home to the most secure populations of dugongs in the World. Around 10,000 dugongs forage in the shallow marine environment of Shark Bay. The clear waters give visitors the chance to view dugongs, manta rays, marine turtles and humpback whales, and the famous dolphins of Monkey Mia visit the beach each day to interact with visitors.
