Marina Port Gregory (Geraldton, Western Australia)

Things to do in Western Australia

Western Australia consists of a vast area known for its diverse climate and variety of landscapes. One of the biggest attractions for the navigator is the Coral Coast, which stretches from Cervantes (and fantastic Mars-like landscape of the desert Pinnacles) to Exmouth, and has more than 1,100 miles of coastline. The Ningaloo Reef allows spending the holidays at the beach every day of the year, in addition to diving and enjoying more than 200 coral species and 500 species of fish. This reef is just 100 meters from the beach, so you can enjoy the biodiversity, anchored by the beach. You can dive amongst the whale sharks, go kayaking to observe the sea turtles or visit the shallow waters of Bundegi Bombies that delight snorkelers.

Coastal towns like Exmouth offer many services, so you can leave your boat anchored and venture into Canyon Road or the Cape Range National Park.
