HID­DEN GEM

Australian Geographic - - Your Say -

We ap­pre­ci­ate and re­spect the Aus­tralian Ge­o­graphic So­ci­ety, the re­search you spon­sor and the mag­a­zine you pro­duce. Ev­ery edi­tion con­tains so much in­ter­est­ing in­for­ma­tion about our won­der­ful coun­try. On page 31 of AG 140 there is a small ref­er­ence to the reef shark nurs­ery at Co­ral Bay in WA.The coast­line from here all the way up to Ex­mouth has amaz­ing places to visit and ex­pe­ri­ence.The whole re­gion is ex­cel­lent for snorkelling. One of the best lo­ca­tions is Turquoise Bay. You walk a few hun­dred me­tres south of the car park, wade out 20–30m into chest-deep wa­ter and float with the gen­tle cur­rent over a won­der­ful reef with amaz­ing co­ral and wildlife, in­clud­ing tur­tles. No ex­ces­sive en­ergy is re­quired and it’s safe for all ages.The whole area is one of Aus­tralia’s best-kept se­crets. By the way, you men­tion that Co­ral Bay is north of Ex­mouth when it is south. No big deal but thought you would ap­pre­ci­ate the in­for­ma­tion. PETER AND JILL PIKE LATHLAIN,WA
