Coral Bay Local History
Coral Bay is a small coastal community located on the west coast of Australia, approximately 1200km North of Perth. It is home to over 500 species of fish, over 250 different varieties of coral and abundant species of invertebrates. With a unique mixing of warm tropical and cool temperate waters, as well as minimal anthropogenic influences, Ningaloo reef is among the healthiest of reef systems worldwide.
At the heart of Ningaloo Reef is Coral Bay. Previously on the map as a fishing hotspot, it is becoming increasingly popular as a destination for people who wish to have an encounter with one or all of the many charismatic megafauna which visit or inhabit the local waters.
These include the world’s largest fish, the whale shark; one of the most spectacular whales on the planet, the humpback whale (during its annual migration); the largest ray on the planet, the manta ray; the endangered dugong; as well as several species of dolphin. The loggerhead and green turtle annually nest along our clean white sandy beaches, and are present in high numbers in the offshore waters year round.
Aboriginal history plays a big part in the Ningaloo Marine Park and Coral Bay. Our rugged coastline contains numerous Aboriginal middens and burial grounds which hold historical accounts of early habitation.
