Where else in the world can you camp along the coastline, with an outstanding marine park in a World Heritage area on your doorstep, stunning coral reef metres from the shore, and the opportunity to get away from it all?

The Ningaloo coastal reserves will be created over the coastal strip of unallocated Crown land adjacent to Ningaloo Marine Park, where many people enjoy low key recreation each year. It also includes State lands that were taken out of pastoral leases in 2015.

The Ningaloo Coast is part of the Baiyungu, Yinikurtira and Thalanyji peoples' traditional land and sea country and maintains significant cultural values.

A maximum of 6 adults and 6 children per site applies, however due to the varying nature of the campsites, maximum occupancy will be assessed on an individual basis by management to ensure pressures on the surrounding environment are minimised.

Is there a chance I may not be able to get a site during peak season?

Yes, this may occur. The number of campsites in the reserve will be capped at current levels to maintain the remote experience for overnight visitors. Campers may be required to seek alternative accommodation with Warroora Station or in Coral Bay if the reserve is declared full. Day use visitation is permitted and will not be capped.

Campfires are not permitted on days of high fire danger or above, please refer to https://www.emergency.wa.gov.au/#firedangerrati ngs for daily fire danger ratings. Fires are not permitted on the open ground and must be contained within a portable fire pit to address visitor concerns about campfire coals spreading around campsites and ruining the amenity of the area as well as associated safety concerns.
