Where there's life above and below the water.

Coral Coast Mud MapFollow the coast and discover some of the world’s most diverse marine habitats just metres away from pristine beaches.

You’ll be in awe of World Heritage-listed Shark Bay and Ningaloo Reef – the largest fringing reef on Earth and one of the few places in the world where you can swim with the largest fish in the sea, the gentle whale shark. Shark Bay’s rare plant and animal life will also appeal to nature lovers and is best uncovered with a Wula Guda Nyinda Eco Adventures experience, which will teach you the traditions of one of the world’s oldest cultures.

You’ll love meeting Monkey Mia’s famous dolphins or wandering the fascinating natural formations of the Pinnacles Desert moonscape. For the ultimate coastal adventure, take a hike along Kalbarri’s dramatic landscapes, where 400-million-year-old river gorges meet the Indian Ocean. If you’re after a thrill, get your adrenalin pumping with a surf on one of the many beaches, or just relax and soak up the serenity from picturesque lookouts scattered across the region.

Head just a couple of hours north from Perth to Cervantes and start exploring this region from day one, discovering endless possibilities as you make your way along the coast towards Exmouth.
