The pristine waters of Ningaloo Reef transform into colourful clouds each year during the coral spawning season. Taking place between 7 and 10 days after the full moon in March and April, the annual coral spawning cycle is an incredible sight and an important part of the regeneration of Ningaloo Reef.
The coral spawn is also a major factor in the arrival of the world's biggest fish, the whale shark. Krill and plankton are drawn to the reef by the coral spawn, which is then in turn eaten by whale sharks which arrive each year to feed.
