The waters and islands of Shark Bay, a World Heritage Site located at Australia’s most westerly point, cover an area of more than 2.2m hectares with some of the most remarkable natural features on the planet. Shark Bay is in fact two bays on either side of Peron Peninsula near Dirk Hartog Island, where red sandhills contrast with sandy beaches, white dunes and dramatic cliffs. Its diverse land and seascapes are home to many marine species, wildlife and flora that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.
