Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia
Guide to Ningaloo Reef
Right beside the barren red soils of the Cape Range lies the turquoise lagoons of Ningaloo Reef, heaving with life and home to some of the world’s most incredible marine creatures.
Some 1,200 kilometres (745 miles) north of Perth, the fringing Ningaloo Reef is a sparkling gem in Western Australia’s crown. Right on the coast, the reef is UNESCO World Heritage-listed, and offers a slew of outdoor adventures. Ningaloo’s most notable visitors are the whale sharks. This is one of the world’s largest aggregations, making it a great place to swim with them, along with manta rays, turtles or humpback whales during their migration.
