Australia's Coral Coast
Follow 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. Meet Monkey Mia’s famous dolphins up close. Catch some world-class surf breaks, or one of the world’s biggest wildflower shows. Wander the curious Pinnacles Desert moonscape, or descend into Kalbarri’s dramatic 400-million-year-old river gorges.

Wild dolphins have been visiting the shoreline at Monkey Mia virtually every day for over 40 years, making this spot in the Shark Bay World Heritage Area one of the best and most reliable places for dolphin interaction in the world.

Step off the shore near Exmouth, swim a few metres through the clearest turquoise water on Earth, and you'll find yourself drifting over the world's largest fringing reef - the World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef. This underwater paradise is a popular spot for all kinds of visitors, from dolphins, manta rays, turtles and humpback whales, to the largest fish in the ocean - the gentle whale shark.
