Ningaloo Reef

The World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef is one of the longest near-shore reefs in the world, its deep-sea canyons and colourful coral reefs teeming with whale sharks, manta rays, loggerhead turtles, and over 500 species of fish. Prior to European settlement, the Ningaloo Coast was inhabited by the Yinigudura people and is named for their word for 'deep water'. Annual gatherings of Humpback whales occur along the Ningaloo Coast from June to mid-October as approximately 30,000 of them migrate from the fertile feeding grounds of the South West to the tropical breeding grounds of the North West Shelf.
The reef stretches approximately 260km from Red Bluff to the Muiron Islands just north of Exmouth and offers a slew of outdoor adventures and cultural experiences.
