Perth and Western Australia Meeting Planners Guide : 2016-2018 Meeting Planners Guide
Coral Coast The Coral Coast stretches along 1,100km of pristine coastline and is surrounded by vibrant wildflowers, wildlife and coral reefs teeming with exotic marine life. Follow the coast up from Perth to discover some of the world’s most diverse marine habitats. A must-visit is World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef, the world’s largest fringing reef and one of the few places on the planet where you can swim with whale sharks, the gentle giants of the sea. Another World Heritage listed site is Shark Bay, where you can visit Shell Beach and meet the dolphins of Monkey Mia. For the ultimate coast adventure, hike along Kalbarri’s dramatic landscapes where 400 million-year-old river gorges meet the Indian Ocean. Experience the Coral Coast • Snorkel, dive or simply swim and admire the colourful sea life of the Ningaloo Reef from Coral Bay or Exmouth. • Just two hours from Perth, view the unique rock formations of The Pinnacles that were formed millions of years ago. These tall limestone spires rise out of the desert sands. • Marvel at the oldest living fossils on Earth, considered to be a part of the planet’s evolution, with a visit to Hamlin Pool Stromatolites in the Shark Bay World Heritage Area. • Swim with whale sharks, the world’s largest fish growing up to 20 metres long. • Discover the rugged beauty of the Cape Range National Park. • Visit Carnarvon, known as the fruit bowl of Western Australia. • Spend 3 or 5 nights on-board Sail Ningaloo exploring the remote reef. Meeting and conference spaces plus accommodation From coastal resorts to wilderness retreats, the accommodation options are as varied as the region itself. The Novotel Ningaloo, at the gateway to Ningaloo Reef and Cape Range National Park, offers spacious rooms and a variety of event areas and complements the other Coral Coast spaces. Getting there Flights are available from Perth to a range of regional airports. Virgin Australia Regional offers flights to Geraldton and Qantas offers flights to Exmouth (Learmonth) and Geraldton. Skippers Aviation offers flights to Monkey Mia and Carnarvon. Flights from Perth to Learmonth airport take 2 hours 30 minutes.
