The pristine 280 km, Ningaloo Reef Marine Park, located 1000 kms north of Perth is one of the rare places on earth where you can walk from the beach onto a coral reef.
The ningaloo is described as a fringing reef - shallow and close to shore.
Supporting 700 reef fish species, 300 coral species, 650 mollusc species, marine turtles and seabirds.
Also the best place in the world to swim alongside one of the 300-500 Whale Sharks that gather here each year.
Situated on the west side of the North West Cape is Cape Range National Park, a spectacular place of rugged limestone ranges, breathtaking deep canyons and 50km of pristine beaches.
Fantastic coral formations, starfish, dugongs, whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins and giant humpback whales are some of the fascinating marine life that inhabit the waters of Ningaloo Marine Park.
