The World Heritage Listed Ningaloo Reef has gained an impressive reputation as one of Earth’s last ocean paradises. Take a dive with hundreds of tropical fish, colourful coral and the world’s biggest fish, the whale shark. It’s one of the largest fringing reefs in the world and unlike many others, you can get to it just by stepping off the beach. The Ningaloo marine park stretches 260 kilometres and it reaches nearly 20 kilometres seaward, encompassing a massive 5,000 square kilometres of ocean with 500 species of tropical fish and 220 species of coral in all.
