Shark Bay

It took 3.5 billion years to create the oldest life form on earth – Stromatolites in Hamelin Bay are living fossils, and they grow and live very well in the highly salty and protected waters of the shallow Shark Bay. The area is over 4,000 km2 large and supports the biggest variety of species and greatest area of seagrass anywhere in the world. These vast underwater ‘meadows’ are home to around 10,000 dugongs or sea cows (10% of the world population). Everything in the Shark Bay region is about marine environments; an extraordinary array of sea animals can be seen here in a most natural and pristine environment. Whales, rays, the famous dolphins of Monkey Mia, turtles, dugongs, sharks, hundreds of fish species are all represented. Water activities are the most popular past-time for tourist visiting the area; a reasonable tourist infrastructure is available in both, Monkey Mia as well as Denham, on the Western side of Peron Peninsula.
