A number of years ago, I had the privilege to swim with dolphins at Discovery Cove in Florida. The experience was a budget breaker, but at the time I thought that this was a once in a life time experience – so why not.
Little did I know that at a place called Monkey Mia in Australia, offered almost the same thing for only the cost of an entry fee into the park. Granted, you will not swim with dolphins, but with a wild dolphin just meters from you, makes the experience so much more exciting.
Monkey Mia is about 25 km from Denham. It is in a remote location with accommodation options, restaurants and a shop. They also host a range of activities which include kayaking, camel riding, and cruises. All of these are fee payable which means that if your budget is already complaining about stretch marks, then these activities may send it in a riot!
However, there are activities which are mostly free which include chess, volley ball, tennis, swimming in the pool or swimming in the bay. Some may include an equipment hire fee such as tennis or volley ball, however on the most half these experiences are free.
If you have never visited Monkey Mia, I will be covering a range of things which include:
- Things to be Aware Of!
- Park & Fees
- Dolphin & Marine Life
- Budget Tips
