Travel to Monkey Mia
About 8528 miles north of Perth lies Monkey Mia (said My-ah), the world famous beach where friendly dolphins swim to shore to interact with eager humans. Located near the town of Denham on the Peron Peninsula, this protected area is housed within the extraordinary Shark Bay World Heritage Area. Monkey Mia, on Australia’s Coral Coast, is close to a vast number of unique attractions unparalleled anywhere else in the world.
Monkey Mia gained its name from a pearling boat called Monkey that anchored here in the late 19th century during in the days when pearling was an industry in the region.
Monkey Mia’s population was never large; settlement was hindered by the lack of rain and water. Until recent times, water was obtained from nearby desalination plant at Denham, the main township located 26km southwest on the other side of the Peron Peninsula.
