Where is it? The centre of Ningaloo Reef, which skirts Cape Range Peninsula, west of exmouth and 1265km north of Perth

How to see it for yourself?

This is a shot of the Reefviewer glass-bottomed boat in the centre of the sanctuary. Tantabiddi covers only four square kilometres but is home to a wealth of marine life such as green sea turtles, estuary cod, parrotfish and clownfish. Ningaloo Ecology Cruises offers boat and snorkelling tours in the sanctuary, while Birds Eye View offers microlight flights for great aerial views like this.

Why I love it

“This is my office! The beauty of World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef never ceases to amaze me. With many years on the job as a captain of the boat pictured, this image made me realise again how lucky I am. Observing people’s excitement  especially kids – is priceless. It stresses the responsibility to pass it on to my children in its stunning untouched state.” – Alek Nowak, Ningaloo Ecology Cruises
