Shark Bay, World Heritage Area
7th December 2012





We had an early morning start, we were keen to visit Shark Bay. First stop was Hamelin Pool, home to the stromatolite, which is a living rock that releases oxygen into the ocean. We literally could see smalls bubbles surfacing in the water. It was amazing, as was the scenery. Our next stop was Eagle Bluff, a scenic lookout of Shark Bay. An awesome sight, looking down into the clear, calm ocean water, we could see stingrays and sharks swimming gracefully. We can understand why this area is called Shark Bay. Not far from Eagle Bluff was the Ocean Park Aquarium. It was one of the most informative aquariums we have ever visited. We had a personsal tour that incleded feeding the sharks and turtles. A very enjoyable experience that we shall treasure. After our amazing aquarium visit we drove to the town of Denham and visited the information centre and decided to stay at the Monkey Mia resort, as we could experience the feeding of the wild dolphins at the 7:45 am feeding.
