Take the track less travelled to seclusion, sea life and surf at Quobba and Gnaraloo.
Just 140 kilometres up the coast from Carnarvon lies the most secluded stretch of UNESCO World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef – the largest and most accessible fringing reef on Earth. The sheer biodiversity of this pristine area makes it a top spot for snorkelling and fishing, but there are huge lures here for those in search of world-class surfing, kite surfing or windsurfing too.
