Monkey Mia Dolphin Interaction

Monkey Mia is just a 28km drive from Denham, and has attracted dolphins to its tranquil shores daily for more than forty years.  This dolphin interaction (7.45am - 12noon and up to 3 times so be early) is known to be one of the most reliable meeting places for dolphins in the world.

Dolphins have visited every day in the last five years excluding only four times. It is the only place in Australia where dolphins visit daily.
