Western Australia’s Coral Coast has somehow managed to fly under the radar of major tourism over the years, but now the secret is out. Starting just under two hours north of Perth and running for 1,200 kilometres north to Exmouth, the Coral Coast is attracting more visitors than ever – from both home and abroad – due to its uninterrupted stretches of white sandy beaches, pristine private islands and coral reefs, carpets of Australian wildflowers and incredibly diverse marine life.
There is a seemingly endless variety of family-centric activities on offer here, many of which are not available anywhere else in the world. From visiting sites of the rarest natural beauty like the Pinnacles and the Pink Lake, to playing with wild dolphins and even swimming with enormous whale sharks, the experiences you have on the Coral Coast are bound to become cherished family memories.
The best way to see this vast stretch of magnificent coastline is by car, and with many car hire companies now waiving exorbitant relocation fees for one-way hire, the untold adventures of the Coral Coast have never been more within reach.
