Kalbarri – Shark Bay
Travelling in a Mighty Highball Camper
Approx 4 hours
Shark Bay is a world heritage listed site. It is one of the only places in the world which is home to all four of the natural criteria for a world heritage area. These are natural beauty, earths evolutionary history, ecological processes and biological diversity. With all of its natural features, colourful landscapes and expansive wildlife, we found it easy to fall in love with Shark Bay.
Heres our top picks for Shark Bay
This spot was perfect for picnic and a swim. We took a walk around the calm and clear lagoon.
This beautiful lookout gives you a birdseye view of the blue waters, cliffs and sealife below.
This beach is entirely made up of the Hamelin Cockle Shell. Super strange to have shells under your feet instead of sand. Perfect spot for a dip but very salty!
We had an awesome visit to the stromatolites, the oldest living organism in the world at over 3 billion years old.
We loved this part of Shark Bay. The calm clear water was perfect for an afternoon on a kayak so we took one out and ended up having a really special experience. As we glided along a friendly bottlenose dolphin joined us and swam next to us, ducking beneath and beside our kayak for about 15 minutes.
Where to catch the sunset
Denham sand dunes – take a beer and climb the dunes to watch as the sun falls behind them.
Monkey Mia beach – chill out the front of the resort on the sand and watch the sun drop behind the national park. This is also a great place to watch the sunrise around the point.
Where to camp
We found it was a good idea to split our stay between Denham and Monkey Mia
Denham seaside tourist village
