One of the reasons why I wanted to visit the Shark Bay UNESCO World Heritage region was because of its famous landscapes. The area is known for not just the beautiful vistas, but the bright red desert that leads right to the edge of the turquoise water. One of the best ways to enjoy the natural splendor of this area is by renting a 4×4 and trekking out for a day in the Outback.
Francois Peron National Park covers an incredible 130,000 acres, and is part of a larger initiative known as Project Eden; an attempt to eradicate non-indigenous flora and fauna. The result is an unspoiled country that if it existed anywhere else in the world, would be littered with resorts and hotels. It’s just that beautiful. But don’t only take my word for it, here are some of the highlights of my visit to Peron National Park and ample reasons for you to include Shark Bay on your travel bucket list.

Wow what an amazing looking place. I love the contrast in your photos between the red earth and perfect blue sky. It has a very dramatic effect.
It’s been added to the bucket list! I love how there are no people in any of your pictures..it gives a real sense of the remoteness of the bay – great pics!
Great shots! Looks like land before time.
