Gnaraloo Station – UNESCO World Heritage Site

Shallow water and a red sky at Gnaraloo Bay

It’s no secret that the Ningaloo Reef is a must-see. Stunning coastline, fantastic fishing and world-class waves. Snorkelling, swimming and diving to explore the magnificent reef; discovering whales, turtles and other majestic marine life; walking and exploring the quiet beaches, and taking in some of the world’s best sunsets.

Make your visit to Ningaloo Reef even more memorable by staying at Gnaraloo Station.

Gnaraloo is a rustic oasis nestled along the Coral Coast where the desert meets the sea. One of the few remaining Merino sheep properties still in the Gascoyne, Gnaraloo Station is approximately 220,000 acres, and boasts a stunning homestead that sits high on an escarpment with panoramic views of the dunes and the beautiful Indian Ocean.

Gnaraloo Homestead offers a range of self-contained, self catering accommodation to suit all budgets and for groups of all sizes. Facilities are equipped with power from 7am to 11pm, drinking water and most with freshwater showers; and most have room to park your boat.

Paul Richardson has been running Gnaraloo Station since 2005. When asked what makes Gnaraloo so unique, he said it’s because there’s just so much to do and discover – and so much of the area is still wild and untouched.

“In winter time, this is simply the best place to be!” Paul said.

“From the Homestead, a short drive north will lead you to Gnaraloo Bay which is an ideal location to launch your boat, or to start your discovery of Ningaloo Reef.”

“Or drive a few kilometers south to 3Mile Camp you’ll find beach-side camping, hot showers and toilets and is close to our world-renowned surf break Tombstones.”

“And of course you’ll want to bring your fishing rod. The fishing is indescribable this time of year!” Paul said.

Paul encourages all West Aussies and Aussies alike who’ve always wanted to visit Ningaloo Reef but never taken the plunge, to grab their sense of adventure and come!

“There’s really no better opportunity to explore some “uncharted territory” and find yourself amidst the best Western Australia has to offer!” Paul said.
