Ningaloo Marine park is a colourful underwater wonderland; the Great Barrier Reef on the east coast of Australia gets more attention but Ningaloo is just as good, if not better. You can snorkel straight off the beach here and let the current drift you until the end, hop out, walk back up the beach and start again!
It is also one of the best places on earth to experience swimming with the world’s largest fish; the whale shark. These spotted, gentle giants are just one of the many amazing species of marine fauna that inhabit the park.
The high diversity and endemism of fauna is due to the great variety of marine habitat found here. From the extensive coral reef that extends down the coastline to the mangrove fringed waters at Mangrove Bay, sandy beaches at Turquoise and Sandy Bays, rocky shoreline at South Mandu, to the seagrass meadows, lagoons and open ocean habitats, it is no wonder that the place is World Heritage Listed.
Camping at this marine recreation paradise is just behind the dunes and are some of the best spots you can park a camper in Australia. You only have to walk fifty metres and you will be floating in the azure waters of the world’s biggest infinity pool.
