getting to sal salis
Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef is an exclusive safari camp hidden in the white sand dunes of Western Australia's Cape Range National Park - in the heart of Australia's newest World Heritage Area. Ningaloo Reef is a fringing coral reef located off the west coast of Australia, approximately 1300km north of Perth. Unlike many other reef systems, the Ningaloo Reef is accessed by stepping off the beach - no boat trip required !
Sal Salis is an hour's drive (70kms) south of the township of Exmouth, in the Cape Range National Park. The tents are situated just 50 metres back from the beach amongst the low lying coastal dunes. Two kilometres behind the camp lies the limestone range of the Cape Range National Park, dissected by spectacular gorges.
