Ever wanted to swim with the gentle giants of the sea? Then get your skates on because the first whale sharks have just arrived in Western Australia’s Ningaloo Reef.
This UNESCO World Heritage-listed ocean paradise, spanning the towns of Exmouth, Coral Bay and Carnarvon, is the perfect spot to watch or even swim with these dappled ocean charmers (and don’t worry, their preferred snack is plankton, not people).
The season only runs until July so nab yourselves a local base where you can soak up those famed WA sunsets. For a glamping escape with views of the Ningaloo Reef, try beach safari camp Sal Salis. Nestled in the sand dunes, their eco-luxe Wilderness Tents are perfect for two.
