Surf Point - Dirk Hartog Island
Shark Bay is outstanding for the abundance of life in its clear waters and the striking beauty of desert landscapes against a turquoise sea.
On land and in the sea, plants and animals from North and south meet at the edges of their ranges at Shark Bay. Combined with the vast seagrass meadows and unusual salinity changes, the result is a mixture of life found only here.
Shark Bay's diverse habitats are refuges for rare, threatened or vulnerable plants and animals.
