    SELF-GUIDED WALK ITINERARY: Embark on a Journey of Survival - The Stefano Barque Trail

    Based on a true story: "The Wreck of the Barque Stefano off the North West Cape of Australia in 1875" by Gustave Rathe

    Step back in time and immerse yourself in the gripping tale of survival as you follow the footsteps of 16-year-old midshipman Michele Baccich and 19-year-old crewman Ivan Juric from the wreck of the Austrian barque Stefano.

    On July 31, 1875, the Stefano set sail from Cardiff, Wales, bound for Hong Kong with a cargo of coal and a crew of 17. However, tragedy struck near Point Cloates on October 26, leading to a harrowing struggle for survival. Join us as we trace their remarkable journey southward, surviving desolation and cyclones, and finding hope in the kindness of local tribes.

  • Fishing & Boating

    Warroora Station, Lyndon WA, Australia .

    Ningaloo Reef is a popular destination for recreational fishing. Species such as Spanglers emperor, Coral trout, Spanish mackerel and Trevally are just a few. 

    Whether fishing for a delicious catch for dinner or catching and release, please refer to the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development DPIRD Recreational Fishing Guide about the zones and various activities, including spearfishing. 

    Be aware of Sanctuary zones; they are 'look but don't take' marine areas. They are protected nursery and schooling areas for important fish species. 

    Fish Feeding Frenzies occur regularly and give the viewer the thrill of seeing Marine Mother Nature in jam-packed action. Sharks congregate in hundreds & sometimes whales too to feed on big black schools of pilchards which are herded into shore.

    2. boat launching facilities are available for use at Coral Bay
    3. there are informal launch areas at 14 Mile beach, not suitable for launching large boats

  • Marine life

    Warroora, Lyndon WA 6701, Australia .

    Marine life is in abundance with whale sharks, migratory whales, manta rays, dolphins, turtles and sharks and countless other fish and marine animals.

    Migratory HUMPBACK WHALES are a constant feature for several months of the year and can be easily seen from the shore, playing almost constantly on the reef’s outer edge. It is truly a fantastic sight to see one of these massive mammals launch their bodies entirely out of the water as they show off to all who are watching. Humpback whales migrate between summer polar feeding areas and winter tropical breeding and calving grounds. They are travelling along the coast from June to October. 

    Ningaloo Reef is one of the few places in the world where WHALE SHARKS sharks appear regularly and are easily accessible to observers. Coral Bay offers tours from March to July.
