This secluded marine retreat is perfect for a dive with a difference.
Ningaloo Chase is set deep within the Cape Range National Park in Western. The deluxe eco safari camp is set on an isolated beach, far from anywhere, fringed by the beautiful Ningaloo Reef.
Accommodation is in safari tents for up to 12 guests at a time. They are spaced well apart and each dome tent has its own private area and bathroom, which has a hot water shower and toilet. Linen is provided in the tents and beds are on futon slats.
Located just south of Yardie Creek Gorge, about an hour from Exmouth, access is only by four-wheel drive. You can stay for just one day, but most people find that it's just no long enough to fully appreciate the camp's remoteness.
Guests are collected from their accommodation and transferred to the camp. Typical days begin at around 8.30am and end the next afternoon.
The road is sealed until you reach Yardie Creek and when you arrive at the camp you are briefed by staff to tell you what activities have been arranged. You can join in or swing in your hammock and soak it all up. There is snorkelling, swimming and kayaking all of which is included in the price.
The camp is solar-powered with fully-equipped kitchen and dining tent/common room.
Most visitors like to spend the afternoon wandering around Ningaloo Reef and dinner is a communal affair by the campsite. There is a chef to cook, and there is usually a catch-of-the-day barbecue.
Next morning breakfast is served at around 8:30am you head back to Yardie Creek and Turquoise Bay where you can swim, fish, snorkel and tour the lighthouse and its surrounds.
The camp isn't available for day trippers, but can be hired out entirely with customised tour packages and activities available on request.
If you want alcohol, you need to take it with you, along with day bag, towel, hat, sunscreen and personal toiletries.
