Beds are filling up fast as Shark Bay’s accommodation providers get ready for next month’s Dirk Hartog Voyage of Discovery 1616 festival.
RAC Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort manager Martin Grenside said demand for accommodation at his iconic Western Australian tourist destination has been at an all-time high for the October 21 – 25 event.
“The calls are coming thick and fast every day,’’ Mr Grenside said.
“At the moment, we have some beachside campsites from $53 a night up to resort rooms with beach views for $395 a night, but things are changing every day as fresh bookings come in.”
The festivities would be held around the shire to celebrate the 400-year anniversary of Dutch explorer Dirk Hartog’s discovery of Australian shores.
The festival is the biggest event of its kind to have been held in the shire with people coming from across the country to take part in the celebrations.
More than 740 rooms have already been booked for the week of the festival
