About Our Festival

The Ningaloo Whaleshark Festival highlights the community’s relationship with the yearly visitation of the whale shark.

The festival’s objective is to bring together government departments, business,industries and community members to strengthen their relationships whilst enhancing the education and celebration of the Whale Shark and its annual visit to Ningaloo.

The Whaleshark Festival is for all ages and is possibly the only event in honour of that unique, spectacular creature, the whale shark which is recognised both nationally and internationally.
