Ningaloo Reef

Ningaloo Reef is one of the world's largest fringing reefs. This intricate reef system stretches over 260 km and at some points only metres from the beach.

The Ningaloo Reef is home to a myriad of marine life, including one of the rarest, and the largest fish in the world - the whale shark. These leviathans, of up to 18 metres in length, are regular visitors to the Ningaloo Reef from March to June, when the plankton rich waters draw them close to the reef in search of food.
