Welcome to the Coral Coast Highway.
Along the way, you will discover a combination of some of Australia's and the world's most amazing attractions and experiences, many found nowhere else on earth, as the road hugs the Indian Ocean coastline.
The Coral Coast Highway takes you to Western Australia's only World Heritage Areas - Shark Bay and Ningaloo. You'll find pristine coastlines and colourful reefs, rugged gorges and striking ranges, world-class diving, snorkelling and fishing, an abundance of incredible wildlife and marine life, heritage, history and culture, foodie experiences and carefully crafted brews, and a landscape filled with colour from green to blue, red to pink, orange to yellow...
Your first stop on the Coral Coast Highway is the famous otherworldly Pinnacles Desert of Nambung National Park, just north of Perth. Your last stop? The World's largest fringing reef - the World Heritage Listed Ningaloo Reef.
The only thing spoilt, will be you.
