The Shark Bay peninsula is located at the most westerly point on the Australian continent and expands over an area of about 22,000km2. It’s officially listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site due to it’s rich marine life, including the presence of stromatolites, and having one of the largest and most diverse seagrass beds in the world. Shark Bay’s waters are also known for possessing some of the most exceptional natural features. The vibrancy of colours and natural contours of the earth and sea fuse together to create some of the most captivating frames of nature. Taken from a Cessna 206.
