Weather
Shark Bay's Climate Shark Bay has a semi-arid climate with hot, dry summers and mild winters. The average annual temperature is 26.5º C, and the average annual rainfall is 228 mm. This mild climate is paired with a sometimes intense southerly wind, especially between October and April. However, the wind is great for water sports such as sailing, windsurfing and paragliding. A windy day in the Bay is an ideal time to visit the Discovery Centre, Monkey Mia or Hamlin Bay areas, or take a 4WD trip up the Peron Peninsula. There are plenty of wonderful things to do in the Shark Bay Heritage Region. Click HERE for more information.
