Exmouth & Ningaloo Reef
Situated at the northern gateway to the Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area, Exmouth is the perfect base to explore the grandiose landscapes of the Cape Range National Park and the underwater wonders of the Ningaloo Marine Park. Visitors come from around the world to swim with the awe-inspiring gentle giants of the sea - the whale sharks, manta rays and humpback whales. If Coral Bay's strengths are the water then Exmouth is really about the Range and the Reef - a National Park thats about a Marine Park, wrapped up in a UNESCO World Heritage listing based on both marine and terrestrial (land) based qualities that need to be preserved.
Ningaloo Reef, the largest fringing reef in Australia, sits just a short drive from Exmouth town, making it the must-see destination for keen divers and snorkellers. Home of one of the world's top ten shore dive the Exmouth Navy Pier is referred to as the aquarium without glass. Here divers will see more species fish in one site than possibly in their entire diving life.
The Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area is Australia's largest fringing reef system, stretching 300kms from Red Bluff north of Carnarvon to the Muiron Islands off the coast of Exmouth. To add to this list of acknowledgements, Ningaloo is also Australia’s newest Hope Spot - Ningaloo Coast and Exmouth Gulf, with the region now home to 2 of the 6 Australian Hope Spots, being global locations considered critical to the health of the ocean. The world heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef and adjacent Exmouth Gulf were designated as having global significance, and together have been cited a Hope Spot by international marine science organisation Mission Blue, which is run by legendary oceanographer Dr Sylvia Earle.
