Where we live
The North West Cape, in Western Australia is home to the Ningaloo World Heritage Area.
This area contains Ningaloo Reef, Australia’s only fringing coral reef. It is 260km long and has more than 500 species of fish and 200 species of coral. The Cape Range is a rugged limestone divide between Ningaloo Reef and Exmouth Gulf, with more than 700 caves and rare Stygofauna living in them. And on the eastern side of the ranges is Exmouth Gulf, a rare and precious mangrove estuarine system of 2600km2.
Each year, along with thousands of visitors, we await the migration of the whale shark, humpback whales, dugong, manta rays and turtles. Ningaloo is a national and international eco-tourism hotspot.
Our members are people who feel privileged to live here and experience the wonders of this area on a daily basis, and consider ourselves stewards of this beautiful natural environment.
