Whaleshark Festival Magic

b2ap3_thumbnail_whaleshark-festival-magic.png

Swimming with the whale sharks, manta rays, and colourful fish are a bucket list adventure at Ningaloo. This year even the first humpbacks of the season appeared early for the Ningaloo Whaleshark Festival (May 21-24). The magnificent fringing reef runs 260km along the coast and provides a plentiful supply of krill for the annual return of the whale sharks. The world's largest living fish grow up to 18metres in length.

For those who didn't venture out to the reef the festival offered bands and entertainers including the Sunshine Brothers, Morgan Bain, 'Fingers' Mitch Cullen, James Abberley and Mike Elrington. 

The Gala Opening was a sell out.  Held by the Novotel Ningaloo Resort pool guests mingled under a starry sky or danced to the sounds of the Sunshine Brothers. They dined on delicacies created by chefs from the resort's award winning Mantaray's restaurant.

ASP Xtreme thrilled crowds with their motocross skills and their acrobatic displays riding their bikes high up into the air at Talanjee Oval on Saturday.

The Festival Finale was held at Exmouth Yacht Club with bands, entertainment, games and a mystical mime by stilt walkers from the Gascoyne in May Troupe. The artists portrayed the Ningaloo coast historical characters including the early sailors, settlers, and sea life brought to life under special lighting.
