Station Life Peron Homestead, Shark Bay

  • Less than 1 hour
  • 0.6 km
    • Bush Walk Grade 1

At the base of Shark Bay’s Peron Peninsula is a scattering of historic sheep station buildings that have stood the test of time in a harsh environment.  This short flat and easy 240metre walk trail shows the visitor, through interpretive signage, what station life was like.

The hot tub has gas barbecues nearby - a great place to relax after the trail.

Just 10km out of Denham on the Monkey Mia road is a relic of Shark Bay's pastoral heritage. The walk trail links old station buildings with interpretive signage along the way. The information centre tells the history of the station and the Aboriginal heritage as well as its current use.

Of interest are the well preserved shearers quarters and shearers kitchen. The Peron Homestead walk has a most unusual feature. Weary travellers can soak their bodies in a large hot tub modified from an artesian bore that once watered thirsty stock.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
