Ningaloo - more than one bucket list adventure

Think you’ve had your bucket list adventure at Ningaloo swimming with the whale sharks?  Think again!  Exmouth has more ….


Now you can swim with the whales from August 1 as well as take a turtle snorkelling tour (September – February) where you’ll get up close and personal with the graceful playful turtles. 

…. And if you haven’t experienced the thrill of swimming with the whale sharks….  they’re back annually to Ningaloo in late March until August.


Even better visit in May and enjoy the Ningaloo Whale Shark Festival and get a discount on swimming with the whale sharks on Sunday, May 27, when entry into the Cape Range National Park is free all day. Book your tickets for the Festival Gala Opening on Friday, May 25 and party poolside at Mantarays Ningaloo Beach Resort. It’s the largest social event of the year at Ningaloo. See more at

Mantarays Ningaloo is the ideal base to explore both the marine and land environment and is built in harmony with the coast, right on Sunrise Beach. From most of the rooms you can enjoy sunrise over the water each morning without even having to get out of bed!


Relax poolside or on your private balcony, check out the Ningaloo oceanside beaches or venture into the Cape Range National Park both World Heritage-listed and so close for your enjoyment.


Mantarays Ningaloo is family friendly with children under the age of 16 and accompanied by parents offered free accommodation (using existing bedding and a roll away bed) as well as free breakfast in Mantaray’s restaurant. The benefits to families don’t end there, our children’s swimming pool, adjacent to the resort pool, means all the family can share a fun time swimming and relaxing together. 


With 68 spacious rooms including hotel, one and two bedroom apartments and bungalows, the resort is an ideal venue to experience the North West in comfort.


Choose a two bedroom bungalow, which sleeps four and you have the exclusive use of a large barbeque, eight person spa all on your private balcony deck overlooking the beach and just a stone’s throw from the waterline. A roll away bed is also available in these ground floor rooms.


The resort boasts Gold Plate Award winning Mantaray’s restaurant and bar.  Guests can dine on fresh local seafood and seasonal produce indoor, outdoor or poolside any time of the year.
