Shark Bay is easy to find on the map of Australia. Look for the westernmost edge of the continent, the part closest to Africa. That was the direction from which the first ship came in 1616 and her unexpected landfall made Shark Bay the scene of the first recorded European landing in Australia.

Shark Bay: Through Four Centuries looks at the history and natural history of the Shark Bay Region, a World Heritage Area.

It was written and published for the Shark Bay Shire in August 1999 on the 300th anniversary of the naming of the Bay by William Dampier in 1699.
