Out of Town Attractions

Snorkelling- With the Shire of Carnarvon being the southern gateway to the Ningaloo World Heritage area there are a number of spectacular snorkelling areas located along the coastline between Carnarvon and Coral Bay. Areas such as Point Quobba, the 3 mile Lagoon and Gnaraloo Bay offer visitors the opportunity to snorkel along reef systems with an abundance of sea life such as tropical fish and turtles that call the reef home.

Whale Watching-  The cliffs along the northern stretch of coastline offer the ideal platform to view humpback whales of the coast during their annual migration which takes place from June to November. Visitors are often left in awe while viewing these gentle giants breaching out at sea from popular spots such as the Blowholes, Quobba Station, Red Bluff and Gnaraloo.

Surfing- The coastal strip from Carnarvon to Gnaraloo offers some impressive surfing locations for those with experience on their side.

Where the desert meets the coast. The Bluff is world renowned surfing with waves ranging from 1ft to 8ft with a monster left hand reef break. Better surfing months are May through to August. Other surfing spots along the Quobba coastline include
17mile and the Blowholes – remember to check weather sites for swells.

The coastline along Gnaraloo boasts some world class waves at locations such as Tombstones, however most are recommended for experienced surfers only. The waves and reef can be rough and being a remote location it is important that people know their limits.
