    Dolphins

    Dolphin

    Every morning, a group of wild bottlenose dolphins will swim close to the shore of the beach at knee deep waters. Do be there by around 8am. Do not touch them as they will get scared off. According to the conservation officer, the dolphins swim sideways when they are close to the shore as they want to take a look at their visitors.

    Feed the Dolphins!

    Me feeding a dolphin!

    There are 2 feeding sessions a day. Almost very morning, a group of bottlenose dolphins will come close to shore, waiting to be fed by humans. As these bottlenose dolphins are wild animals, the feeding sessions are strictly controlled by the conservation officers and each dolphin is only fed one-third(not more than 2kg) of their normal diet which consisted of fresh fish during feeding sessions so that they do not become fully dependent on humans. Thus, only a few people will be lucky enough to be selected to feed a dolphin. I was one of those lucky few!!!! I was so happy as I really love dolphins. However, the person who took the picture for me didn't take it well : ( Another thing, these dolphins will swim off and disappear really quickly immediately after the feeding session. You can also find more information about these dolphins in the website given below.

    Hamlin Pool

    Located on the road to Monkey Mia lies Hamlin Pool.
    Here you can find the oldest Lifeform on earth - and still living.
    They are the Stromatolites, stone-like structures built by living Bacteria. They resemble Corallae.

    Its one of the two places in the world where they still exist, and they seem to be doing fine, since they do not have so many problems with the snails here - the water is too salty because it is very flat.

    The Stromatolites can be viewed best when its low tide.

    We were lucky (see picture)

    Where are those shells?

    This beach is made up of billions of tiny shells, and is one of only two such beaches in the whole world.
    The beach runs for 100 kms and is between 7 and 10 metres deep with shells

    Nice Beaches

    Almost deserted beach

    Monkey mia is not all about dolphins. When they are not there, you can enjoy the nice beaches.

    You may have to share your towel with few pelicans though.

    Just you dare get any closer!

    On the beach at Monkey Mia, you can get in close with the local wildlife.

    Don't recommend this one though as the bird might mistake your hand for a fish

    Must wash away that fishy breath

    Pelicans are also a sideshow at Monkey Mia.
    They can often be seen in amusing situations, trying to earn their fish.

    Monkey Mia

    I was here back in 1995 and found it to be HOT and no dolphins, turns out they come at set times. Although the nearby Francis Peron NAtional Park was gorgeous.
