Monkey Mia information
Watching the wild dolphins turning up for a feed each morning in the shallow waters of Monkey Mia, 26km northeast of Denham, is a highlight of every traveller's trip to the region. Don't be put off by the resort vibe – once you see these beautiful, intelligent mammals up close you'll forget about everything else. Watch the way they herd fish upside down, trying to trap them against the surface. The pier makes a good vantage point. The first feed is around 7.45am, but you'll see them arrive earlier, and hang around after the session, as the dolphins commonly come a second, and sometimes even a third time.
