Australia’s Coral Coast is one of five tourism regions withing Western Australia and it stretches from Cervantes in the south to Exmouth in the north. It is approximately 1170km of coastline.
The Coral Coast is is home to Australia’s largest fringing reef, the Ningaloo Reef which is made up of more than 260km of coast. The Ningaloo Reef is home to 500+ species of tropical fish and 220+ species of coral.
The worlds largest fish, the Whaleshark, grows up to 18m long, makes the Ningaloo Reef its home from March – July every year. Ningaloo is one of the few regions in the world where the whaleshark regularly visits and is easily accessible to observers.
Seems like there are plenty of reasons to visit but as the whalesharks are now ‘just’ arriving into our waters, how about coming sooner than later.
