From Perth fly just under two hours north to Exmouth, which will be your base for the next two days while you explore the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef. A 260 klilometre (162 mile) coral reef fringes this glorious coastline and its waters are rich with tropical fish, manta rays and the harmless whale shark. Turquoise Bay is a great place to try snorkelling for the first time, with its clear, shallow water brimming with colourful corals. For more snorkelling head around two hours south of Exmouth to Coral Bay, where you can swim to the reef directly off the beach. Want to try scuba diving? There are a number of half and full day diving tours to experience this breathtaking underworld.

Further south where the red earth meets the white sand, dolphins and dugongs can be hand fed at Monkey Mia and Shark Bay. Friendly, bottlenose dolphins regularly swim to Monkey Mia’s shore in the mornings, and feeding times occur between 7.30am and noon. At Monkey Mia you can also join a wildlife cruise to see dugongs and turtles. You’ll find a number of resorts and holiday cottages in Exmouth and Shark Bay, but for a luxury experience look no further than Sal Salis, which offers 16 safari tents tucked into the sand dunes beside the Ningaloo coast.
