Gnaraloo is located on the southern tip of the Ningaloo Reef, 135km north of Carnarvon. Gnaraloo is a wilderness tourism business and working pastoral station offers the real thing - an Australian outback experience like no other and a retreat from everyday life.

Surrounded by stunning coastline, you will experience fantastic fishing and world-class waves. You can swim, snorkel or dive on the Ningaloo Reef, walk and explore the quiet beaches, and relax in our basic accommodation or campgrounds with a drink, watching some of the best sunsets in the world. When the season’s right, you are guaranteed to see whales swim by.

Bring your sense of adventure when you get here. We consider much of our surrounds to be “uncharted territory,” so you will have the opportunity to explore the land and find yourself amidst the best Western Australia has to offer.


A wilderness campground on the edge of the Ningaloo Reef is 3Mile Camp, with 65 unpowered campsites.

The back-to-basics style sites are complemented by a protected lagoon that’s perfect for snorkelling and a secret surf spot ‘Tombstones’ Surfing that boasts one of the best waves in the world. You will also find several spots to access great fishing.

3Mile Camp offers 4 styles of camping: Basic sites, Primo sites, the Lagoon site and the Hilton. Click here to find out more about each campsite.
