Ningaloo Reef, Exmouth and Coral Bay, Western Australia
Based on the Ningaloo Reef Marine Park in Western Australia, Indian Ocean imagery has the Indian Ocean at its fingertips. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Area, Ningaloo covers over 280 km’s of Indian Ocean coastline, supporting an abundance of around 500 fish species and 250 coral species, grandly stating its claim as the longest fringing reef system in the world.
Ningaloo Reef is home to some of Australia’s most treasured marine creature’s, such a large resident population of manta rays (Manta alfredi), a huge variety of sharks including seasonal visits from the largest fish in the ocean the whale shark (Rhincodon typus). It has also become recognised as a habitat and breeding area for the endangered Dugong (Dugong dugon), the Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) and a nesting ground for many turtle species including the endemic Flatback Turtle (Natator depressus).
