Ningaloo Marine Park protects the world-famous Ningaloo Reef – Australia’s largest and most accessible fringing reef. The shallow lagoons and deeper offshore waters create a diverse array of habitats for a multitude of colourful corals and more than 500 species of fish. Many other creatures regularly visit Australia’s Ningaloo Reef, including whale sharks, turtles, dugongs, dolphins and humpback whales. Stretching 300 kilometres, the Ningaloo Marine Park begins at Bundegi Reef in the Exmouth Gulf, skirts around North West Cape and ends at the southern gateway to Australia’s Ningaloo Reef at Red Bluff (north of Carnarvon). It extends 10 nautical miles seaward and encompasses over 5,000 square kilometres of ocean. This project was supported by DPAW, Yardie Creek Boat Tours, Ningaloo Ecology Cruises Glass Bottom Boat Tours, Yardie Homestead & Warroora Station. Yardie Homestead Caravan Park is situated 26 km from Exmouth on the western seaboard of the North West Cape, surrounded by a wilderness of rugged ranges and pristine coastline. Warroora Station (pronounced Warra) is a family run cattle station adjacent to the World Heritage Ningaloo Reef coastline, offering eco friendly wilderness beach camping and authentic Station Stay Accommodation.
