Located at Dolphin Beach, famous for its kilometres of secluded crystal blue waters and pristine white-shell beaches, Monkey Mia has attracted schools of dolphins to its tranquil shores daily for more than forty years.
This dolphin interaction is known to be one of the most reliable meeting places for dolphins in the world. Dolphins have visited everyday in the last five years excluding only four times. It is the only place in Australia where dolphins visit daily, not seasonally, and costs nothing.
RAC Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort is currently undergoing an expansion and redevelopment with project completion expected in June 2018.
These exciting changes will transform the resort, delivering an improved guest experience with several new facilities and accommodation options available.
The safety and comfort of our guests is our foremost priority; hence we will be closing the caravan and camping sections of the Resort from 1 November 2017 until the end of June 2018. All cabins and rooms will remain open.
