Shark Bay, Denham & Monkey Mia


 Western Australia

Shark Bay is situated on the west coast of Australia's Coral Coast tourist region, 850kms north of Perth. It is a major feature on the Western Australian coastline extending from the mainland into the Indian Ocean as a large peninsula with several large islands and mud flats. This World Heritage Area is of extraordinary global significance. Spectacular coastal landforms, the many bays and inlets and the remarkable amount of wildlife make this area a must see. From dolphins to dugongs, fishing and wildflowers, the area is a huge National Park.

The Hamelin Pool Stromatolites are at the bottom of the inner bay of Shark Bay and are the first thing you come to in the area.

Listed as an important world heritage spot, they are stored in this very small pool. A 200 metre boardwalk leads visitors over the

calm waters to view these amazing Stromatolites.  Image sourced from http://nurithharel.blogspot.com/

 The shells were once used to build the office walls of buildings in the area, some of which are still standing, most noticeably in

There are several small inlets along the west shore of the road up to Denham.



Fowler's Camp Inlet has some interesting mangroves.




















Best Evidence for Creation

Created from the most popular “Best Evidences” presentation of one of AiG’s

most active speakers, Absotively, Posilutely: Best Evidence for Creation is a

delightful story with a challenge: find the absolute best evidence that God

created the world! It will get kids thinking logically as well as biblically.

Designed for children ages 8 to 14 and written in an entertaining style, the book

tells the story of a search for answers by students in a Sunday school class.

They learn that the best evidence isn’t always what can be seen—and that

the answer was there in front of them all along! Full-colour.

"The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart...  that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek,

for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD

shall be saved.” "   Letter to the Romans  ch.10  vs.8-13.  The Holy Bible - New King James Version




The Bottlenose Dolphins of Monkey Mia are world famous for their ritual of swimming to shore to interact with humans. Seven dolphins frequent the beach in particular and are followed by up to 20 others.  Image sourced from http://www.panoramio.com/photo/212818
