Whale sharks: Exmouth
In Western Australia the whale season is even longer than on the east coast as it reaches from May to September. Asides from the humpbacks and southern right whales, the occasional rare blue whale also pays the west coast a visit every now and then. Along the coast there are several different lookouts from where it is possible to spot whales. The most popular place to do so is south of Perth in Flinders Bay, Augusta. The Northwest Coast Whale sharks: Exmouth From April to July you can meet another marine giant outside the coast of Western Australia. Even though the name indicates the opposite, the whale shark is harmless and only feeds on plankton – which means that it is possible and perfectly safe to snorkel alongside these gentle giants.

Must do in Perth:
Perth is not the only place around the west coast which is worth a visit.

The Ningaloo Reef
Not many people I’ve met have heard of the Ningaloo Reef. It is a world heritage site and is located in Western Australia, approximately half way between Perth and Broome. It is way smaller than the well-known Great Barrier Reef but that doesn’t mean it’s less diverse. Apparently it’s home to more than 500 different fish and marine life. It is located very close to the coast line of Western Australia which makes it attractive for snorkelers and divers because they can reach the reef by swimming only a few meters from the beach. The easiest access point is probably Coral Bay. Exmouth is another close-by town from where you can start your snorkeling adventure but it involves a short drive by car through the Cape Range National Park in order to enter a beach with reef access.PurpleParrotsCanFly
