"The only place in Australia I know of that you can swim with dolphins in the wild"

Monkey Mia is awesome for that fact. There are park rangers there that will feed the dolphins fish, but never enough for them to rely on it solely. We were fortunate enough to have the dolphins come right up to us as we were standing there, and rub against us. That was pretty cool - hence if you are ever up that far in WA, make the effort to go and visit Monkey Mia

"Ideal location to work"

Monkey Mia is 800km north or Perth and is in the Shark bay Marine Park district and is world heritage listed. There is no private real estate available at Monkey Mia and the nearest town is Denham 25 kms south west. Monkey Mia is famous for the Bottle nose dolphins which come in daily to feed and interact with people. Many tourists line up to feed and stroke the dolphins and these activities are closely watched by the Department of Environment and Conservation rangers. Anyone living in the area is usually employed and housed at the Monkey Mia resort and there are a number of hospitality occupations available as well as trades people, maintenance etc. The resort has everything for both the tourist and the employee such as great restaurants, wonderful rooms etc as plenty to occupy your free time such as snorkeling, swimming, tennis, 4 wheel driving and of course the world famous camel rides. Getting to Monkey Mia is easy these days with flights from Perth four times a week, coach trips or you can drive yourself. The drive is about 9-10 hours from Perth and the roads are tar sealed all the way and are kept in good order. The climate is very hot and humid in summer and cyclones are not uncommon in this area. Winter is an ideal time to visit and escape the southern cold.
