Western Australia's Coral Coast is a pristine region of fringing reefs and sugar-white sands home to a dazzling array of ocean- and land-dwelling wildlife. Explore this dazzling natural world as you dive with whale sharks and spend luxurious night in luxury lodges among the dunes.
The headline acts here are Ningaloo – the world's largest fringing reef – and Monkey Mia, where dolphins play just yards from the beach. Take the chance to watch humpbacks, dugongs and manta rays on expert-led diving trips, and kick back in peaceful towns where you'll tuck into freshly caught seafood, share a beer or two with the locals and marvel at what are surely among the world's best sunsets. And, with a coastline that stretches some 1,000km from north to south, you never have to venture far to find your own private corner of paradise.
But, it's not all about the coast. Inland, you'll find the sprawling and remote Karijini National Park, a world of plunging gorges, cascading waterfalls and out-of-the-way swimming holes host to an abundance of must-see Aussie wildlife.
