One-week Ningaloo escape | Coral Coast
DAY ONE Carnarvon–Exmouth Take the early morning flight
from Perth to Learmonth Airport and pick up a hire car. Check
in, and familiarise yourself with Exmouth.
DAY TWO Exmouth Head out to Vlaming Head Lighthouse for
sunrise, then to Cape Range National Park. Have cash ready to enter
the park – it’s $11 per vehicle. Lakeside campground, near the visitor
centre, 400m south of the beach access is a great snorkelling spot.
For lunch, picnic at Turquoise Bay, then head around the corner to
the snorkel drift. My favourite coral bombie is about 100m south
of the drift beach access, less than 10m from the shore. Our last
snorkel for the day is at Oyster Stacks.
DAY THREE Exmouth Divers can take a charter to the outer reef,
the Muiron Islands or the Navy Pier. Considered one of the top 10 shore
dives in the world, this is a working defence facility, so check with
Exmouth Visitor Centre first. Alternatively explore Cape Range National
Park, in your own 4WD or an organised tour. The main sights are Shothole
Canyon and Charles Knife Canyon. On the western side of the cape,
Yardie Creek has walking trails.
DAY FOUR Exmouth–Coral Bay Drive to Coral Bay (about two hours)
for an underwater garden of marine life. Take an afternoon snorkel right
off the beach and stay at the caravan parks or resort accommodation.
DAY FIVE Coral Bay Stay for swimming or snorkelling. Anglers can
join a fishing safari. Adventurous types can join a diving trip or manta-ray
tour. Take a 4WD along the coast or hire a quad bike for rugged adventure.
DAY SIX Coral Bay To explore further out, take a glass-bottomed boat
trip or why not join a snorkelling tour? Be sure to have the camera ready
on the tripod for sunset.
DAY SEVEN Head back to Learmonth to drop off the car and fly home.
“Picnic at Turquoise Bay, then head
around the corner to the snorkel drift.”
