Open 7 Days 9am - 5pm
Ocean Park is involved in the WA state government’s research projects into passive shark attack mitigation technologies, the Department of Fisheries fish population surveys and the Department of Parks and Wildlife’s Monkey Mia Dolphins project on a regular basis.
At Ocean Park we openly encourage cooperation with universities and support scientific studies. We allow university researchers to access the facilities at Ocean Park where three studies into passive shark mitigation strategies were recently undertaken by students from Curtin University in Perth. Our staff also assist with Florida International University’s Shark Bay Ecosystem Research Project.
If you represent a university or marine research organisation and feel you could benefit from working alongside the team at Ocean Park, contact us to discuss the possibilities.
Ocean Park is situated 8km south of Denham and approximately 30km from Monkey Mia on Shark Bay Road. Located on Western Australia’s rugged and spectacular west coast, Ocean Park is nearly the most western most point of Australia.Get Driving directions
