Trails: Coral Coast

www.australiascoralcoast.com

A place like nowhere else in Australia; secluded beaches, untouched coral reef, breathtaking gorges, carpets of beautiful wildflowers and very friendly people. This magnificent region includes many of Western Australia’s well known attractions and experiences; The Pinnacles Desert, Abrolhos Islands, Kalbarri National Park, Shark Bay World Heritage Area, the dolphins at Monkey Mia and the incredible Ningaloo Reef where you can swim with  the world’s largest fish- the Whale Shark.

It also features some of WA’s favourite family holiday destinations including Kalbarri and Coral Bay. There are the charming coastal towns of Cervantes, Jurien, Greenhead and Leeman and further north, Denham, Carnarvon and Exmouth.

Inland is just as spectacular, particularly during wildflower season when the area explodes into carpets of brilliant colour. You’ll find a charming blend of wildflowers and historical treasures in the south around Dandaragan and Badgingarra and further north to Three Springs, Mullewa and Northhampton.

Whether you’re looking for pristine beaches and an array of water activities, exciting National Parks and family adventures or simply looking to lay back and relax, Australia’s Coral Coast has it all.
