Ningaloo Reef is the world's largest fringing reef, and one of the longest near-shore reef systems in the world, stretching 300km from Carnarvon's Red Bluff to the Muiron Islands in the north and Exmouth Gulf's Bundegi Beach in the east. It is regarded as one of the world's last great ocean paradises.
The UNESCO Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area was established in 2011. Encompassing the Ningaloo Marine Park, which protects the Reef and Coastal Reserves, and land-based wonders like Cape Range National Park, the area received its World Heritage Listing due to its marine and terrestrial (land) properties, such as rare flora and fauna like the Whale Shark - 300 to 500 of these megafauna congregate at Ningaloo each year!
