The Ningaloo Marine Park ranks seventh on the world's list of coral reef biodiversity 'hotspots' and second in terms of the number of species found within a limited range.
 It stretches for 260 kilometers and is the world's largest fringing reef found so close to a continental land mass; so close that in some areas it's only 100 meters from shore, making it easily accessible for coral viewing. The reef contains a diverse range of species including more than 200 corals, 500 fish, and 600 different types of molluscs.
The Ningaloo region offers the opportunity to encounter one of the world's largest aggregations of whale sharks, as well as internationally significant populations of manta rays, dugongs, turtles, rays, sharks, humpback and other whales.
There are approx.  500 species of fish on the Ningaloo Reef. Some of the most common smaller fish are the Parrot Fish, Butterfly Fish, Angel Fish, Damsel Fish, and Scissor Tails & Wrasse. There are also many larger fish such as Groper, Coral Trout, Cod, Trevally, Mackerel and the occasional small Reef Shark. Many of the fish spend their entire lives in the one area of the reef as they are territorial. In particular the smaller tropical fish of the reef spend most of their life in the one location.
Turtles are common to this area and there are 3 known species
The most common is the Green Turtle followed by the Loggerheads and Hawksbills. Between the months of October and April the Turtles mate close to shore. The females then come ashore to lay their eggs under the sand.
Ningaloo Reef was gazetted as a Marine Park in 1987.
In 2011, it became World Heritage Listed, acknowledging it as one of the outstanding natural places in the world.

Coral Bay Indigenous Heritage
 "Bayungu" is an Aboriginal language spoken in the north-west of Western Australia.
The Bayungu Aboriginal Corporation represents the descendant of the people who occupied the coast regions between Carnarvon and Point Cloates before European occupation. Coral Bay is traditionally Bayungu country which extends from Point Cloates through to Point Quobba, and stretches east to Manberry Station and north to Winning Pool Station.

In 1998 ownership of Cardabia Station was handed back to the Bayungu people. This station is now run as a pastoral property with Bayungu people working there. Cardabia has become the main place where people of Bayungu heritage gather. Murlandia, or Maud’s Landing, was one of the main traditional meeting places where people from all neighbouring language groups came together.
The electricity for the town of Coral Bay is provided by a wind-diesel hybrid system.
