We are James, Melissa, Charlotte and Spencer, a young family of four who love to get outside as much as possible, camping, fishing, four wheel driving, anything!
I’d love to share our recent trip to Shark Bay, Western Australia. Around 700km north of Perth, Shark Bay is home to Australia’s “western most point”, beautiful landscapes, crystal clear water, great fishing and of course, the famous Monkey Mia well-known for the dolphin feeding experience.
During the September/October school holidays, we packed up the 4WD and headed north. We camped at Murchison Offload Adventures for three nights, Denham Seaside Tourist Village for six nights, and Lynton Station near Port Gregory for three nights. Magical!
The kids love Shark Bay, especially the Ocean Park shark feeding, Monkey Mia Dolphins, and fishing up in Francois Peron National Park. There are many awesome attractions in this area including the ancient Stromatolites at Hamelin Pool, Francois Peron Homestead (with natural hot tub), many great stations, Shell Beach and the infamous “Steep Point” a land-based fishing mecca.
We like to stay in Denham when we head to Shark Bay because it’s central for most things, plus, it’s a sweet little town that has everything a family could need including shops, food, fuel, and a fantastic beach-side picnic/rest/playground area.
Cheers, James, Melissa, Charlotte and Spencer
