Information

The rugged limestone range and arid coastal plain of Cape Range adjoin the pristine waters of Ningaloo Marine Park with spectacular contrasting scenery. Located within the Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area, Cape Range is rich and diverse in wildlife including kangaroos, emus, echidnas, birds and black-flanked rock wallabies. A visit to Yardie Creek is a must, explore on foot or join a boat tour as it meanders up the gorge between sheer cliffs. Sit for a while and watch the birds flock into Mangrove Bay, view the outer Ningaloo Reef from the lookout at Bloodwood Creek and watch the humpback whales pass during their annual migration (May to October).Relax on one of the many magnificent beaches, or dive in and explore the crystal clear waters and coral gardens of Ningaloo Marine Park. Walk off the shore and snorkel one of the many sites including Turquoise Bay, Lakeside and Oyster Stacks.Visitors can further explore the park's rugged landscape of spectacular canyons on the eastern side of Cape Range along drive trails into Charles Knife Canyon and Shothole Canyon.Baiyungu, Thalanyji and Yinigurdira people are the traditional owners of Cape Range National Park and adjoining Ningaloo Marine Park.
