As I sit here writing this I’m looking out on the bluest water you can imagine, although a bit windy the colour is just beautiful. The road into Ningaloo station was a little rough at parts and seemed to go on forever and ever before we could see the coast; but when we did finally get to our camping location, boy did it impress.
Our friend’s parents spend 3 months a year, normally during May-July and once here I can understand why. They mentioned that friends of theirs up the beach spend up to 7 months here and they have a little community where they catch up for morning tea, dinners and drinks on regular basis! No wonder they love it up here!
They have been coming here for over 30 years and have slowly built their campsite up. They have put in bores, septic systems and even bring along their caravan which is luxury. If you think we are roughing it we aren’t, this is serious ‘glamping’.
We’ve spent the last couple of days on the boat snorkelling the reef and watching turtles bob up and down for air, sounds tough right? Well it was, but someone has to do it. Watching sunsets as the water turns to glass and once it becomes dark the stars you see… wow! The photos don’t do this place justice and I really mean it.
If you’re travelling up the north west coast and are coming anywhere near Ningaloo Station do yourselves a favour and book a few nights here; you’ll be coming back again for sure. Bookings can be made through their website!
