Ningaloo Reef

The Ningaloo Reef is Western Australia’s equivalent to The Great Barrier Reef in the Eastern states. But it has one major advantage: Visitors do not need to be on a boat for hours before they reach the actual reef. In numerous areas around Exmouth, visitors can swim and snorkel straight off the beach and within minutes, they can enjoy the marine wonderland of a pristine coral reef. Ningaloo Reef is located about 1,270 km North of Perth, its two main towns are Exmouth and Coral Bay, it covers 5,076 km2 and is habitat to a wide range of marine life. Probably the most famous habitant would be the whale shark. Ningaloo Reef Marine Park is one of the world’s most reliable places to encounter these filter feeding and absolutely harmless sharks. Following the mass coral spawning, you can start spotting them from March/April until June/July. The reef is also home to an abundance of colourful fish, beautiful corals and other marine life that can be viewed whilst snorkelling in the pristine waters of the North-West.
