Exmouth and Cape Range National Park – Ningaloo Reef
The World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef is one of the longest fringing coral reefs in the world. The Ningaloo Reef was declared a marine park in 1987 in order to protect this unique environment and its inhabitants. It is an absolutely stunning place and a definite highlight of our trip. We had so much fun playing in the sand and snorkelling the pristine waters right from the shoreline.
The spectacular Coral Bay!! We took a glass bottom boat tour and saw so many amazing underwater creatures. We all fell in love with the turtles.
