About Station Life Peron Homestead, Shark Bay
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.
