Denham, Cape Peron & Monkey Mia

After 5 nights at Tamala station, we headed into Denham. We checked into a van park and had a great spot near the entry which had ocean views. We strolled along the foreshore which was nice and had plenty of bits and pieces to see. The old Pearler Restaurant structure was unique. Made up entirely of compressed shells to make the bricks.

Denham Jetty

Kurt tried his luck fishing off the jetty that night for squid, but only landed a small one. Had a great chinwag to the locals and fellow travellers though. We headed into Cape Peron the next morning for a look. A nice sandy track up to the tip. It reminded us of Cape Leveque with the bright orange sand about. The flies were out of control! Definitely need your fly nets to explore in here. We pulled into each different point on the return journey. Finishing off the adventure with a quick soak in the artesian hot tub at the homestead.

Feeding the Dolphins

After 3 nights in Denham, we decided to move over to RAC Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort. Now we were originally a little hesitant to stay at Monkey Mia due to all the costs, but we can happily say it was worth it! We loved our 2 nights here, soaking up the resort facilities and good vibes. We had a swim in the resort pools, dined out at the restaurant, watched the sunset from the beach with good company and a cold beer.

We got up early and headed down to watch the dolphin feeding with the masses. We stayed for 2 feeding sessions and bloody Amz was lucky enough to get picked twice to feed the dolphins! What a way to top off our experience here.

If it wasn’t for the flies about, we could of easily spent a couple more nights here relaxing. A tad pricey, but definitely worth doing in our opinion. Just be careful of the emu’s! They wander around camp which is quite a novelty at first, but they are aggressive and will chase you down for food!

Next stop enroute to Carnarvon!
