Ningaloo Whale Shark Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

22 May 2020 to 24 May 2020

The Ningaloo Whaleshark Festival is an annual event held in and around the town of Exmouth in May, celebrating the annual whale shark migration to the region.

Across three days, the festival offers a range of activities and entertainment for the whole family. Key highlights include music performances, markets and food stalls as well as the opening night – a gala dinner with delicious food and wine along with live entertainment.

The Ningaloo Whaleshark Festival is a community event. Ningaloo Reef is a name recognised nationally and internationally as a ‘premier marine environment’, home to the most predictable, seasonal aggregations of whale sharks in the world. The Ningaloo Whaleshark Festival highlights the community’s relationship with the annual visit of the whale shark.
