Cape Range National Park

Cape range national park with its Ningaloo reef is heaven on the Earth. Photos and video inside. 🙂

Narodni park Cape range s jeho Ningaloo utesem je rajem na Zemi. Fotky a video uvnitr. 🙂


Cape range national park is located close to Exmouth. If you travel in that direction this place can’t be missed!

We found this park very variable and beautiful, there is a bit for everyone – beaches with coral reefs for snorkelling and also fishing spots, lot of animals, rocks with hiking options and very friendly people. This national park has been the best experience so far!

Our highlights:

We had a wonderful time snorkelling at Oyster Stacks which had plenty of coral formations, swarms of colourful fish and NO jelly fish! (Turquoise bay was full of them and it had that annoying strong current)

If you want to see wild, cute and super fast bunnies just go out for a drive in the evening. There’s heaps of them and you will be terrified when they cross the road in front of you but you will laugh like hell when you see them running with their white-mini-asses 🙂

We were lucky enough to swim with the Hawksbill turtle. TWICE! The second time she/he wasn’t that shy and we followed her/him for a while and we even made first contact 🙂

Black footed wallabies are a very strange combo of raccoon, kangaroo and monkey. And it really has black feet and tail. And it moves like a freaking monkey! See it to believe it:)

We have encountered 2 reef sharks while snorkelling. Fortunately we knew beforehand that these sharks are harmless otherwise we would have disgraced the pristine colour of the ocean.

Those red-brownish oval things that you can see in photos below are dead jellyfish. There were ridiculous amounts of them and the sea just kept washing them out.

Turquoise bay is really beautiful beach with different shades of water.

George Knife Canyon is a hidden gem that is a MUST-SEE. Not many people know about this and the road itself is quite hard (4wd recommended). But the scenery and lookouts are just breathtaking and nothing like we have seen before. Recommended!

Narodni park Cape range lezi kousek od Exmouthu. Pokud jedete kolem, tohle misto nesmite minout!

Cape range je krasnej park, ktery ma u nas velky plus = ROZMANITOST. Je tu trochu pro kazdeho – plaze s koralovymi utesy na snorchlovani, ale i mista na rybareni, hodne zvirat na suchu i ve vode, skalnate utesy s moznosti na nejakej sutr i vylezt a vsude v kempech jsou moc mili lide. Dobrovolne tam pres sezonu pracuji – kempuji. Vybiraji od lidi penize a rozdavaji tipy na vsechno mozny. Delaji to spise starsi lidi – pary coz je jeste lepsi protoze jsou zcestovateli a zkuseni :). Co dodat, v tomto parku se nam libilo ze vsech nejvic :).

Nase nejlepsi momenty:

Snorchlovani na Oyster Stacks s ruznymi druhy koralu, hejny barevnych ryb a zadnymi meduzy (Turquoise bay jich byla plna, nemela tolik koralu a hlavne velmi silny vodni proud)

Pokud chcete videt divoky, roztomily a super rychly kralicky jedte se projet autem po zapadu slunce. Videli jsme jich plno. Metelej si to primo pred prednimi koly takovou rychlosti, ze by zaslouzili cenu atlet roku – minimalne ode mne. Navic ty jejich bily zadecky s bambulkami jsou k posusnani :).

Postestilo se nam plavat s zelvou – dokonce dvakrat. Zelva klidas se nenechala vzrusit nasi pritomnosti a my ji s udivem pozorovali. Tom ji dokonce pohladil po krunyri :).

Zije tu zvlastni druh klokana – wallabi. Vypadaji jako kombinace medvidka myvala, klokana a opice. Kresbu jako myval, telo jako klokan a pohyby jak opice. Neuveritelny :).

Behem naseho potapeni jsme taky potkali 2 zraloky – koralovy zraloky. Pohybovali se stejne jak ten jejich vetsi bracha v Celistech, ale nastesti jsme vedeli, ze tito zraloci nejsou nebezpecni a tak nas z vody nevyhnali.

Ty cerveno-nahnedly zakulaceny veci co muzete videt dole v galerce jsou mrtvy meduzy. Kdyz jsme tam byli my, tak jich tam bylo neskutecny mnozstvi a more vyplavovalo dalsi a dalsi. Tento druh ale neni nijak pro cloveka nebezpecny.

Turquoise bay je prekrasna plaz se vsemi odstiny modry (a rudymi meduzimi fleky:).

George Knife Canyon je ukrytej poklad, kterej musite videt. Ne moc lidi vi o tyhle ceste, ktera je sama o sobe docela drsna(doporucujeme ctyrkolku), ale ty vyhledy a scenerie jsou dechberouci a zkratka jedinecny. Doporucujeme – vhodny i na kolo :).

    To potápění! Těžká závist! Doufám, že nebudete takto chtít natočit nějakého krokodýla!
