Must-see sights along the Coral Coast

#1 Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area

Ningaloo Reef is Australia's largest fringing reef system and also as one of the last great ocean paradises. You can calmly swim with the world's largest fish, the whale shark, as well as manta rays and humpback whales. Alternatively, cruise on the reed on an eco-tour to spot dolphins, turtles and breaching whales.

In the south, Carnarvon is an ideal base for day trips and overnight visits to the southern Ningaloo Reef and Gascoyne Hinterland. Further north, Coral Bay, is a small, laid back seaside village - a marine paradise for nature lovers and one of WA’s premier family holiday destinations. The town of Exmouth is the northern gateway and is the perfect location from which to explore the impressive landscape of the Cape Range National Park and the underwater wonders of the Ningaloo Marine Park.
