Ningaloo Whaleshark Festival Ningaloo, Australia May 21 – 24
When the world’s largest sharks visit in hordes, what do you do? Jump in and hold a festival, of course! Fortunately, whale sharks are completely harmless to humans so everyone can swim with these friendly giants. From April to July, the sharks congregate at Ningaloo Reef on Western Australia’s Exmouth coast. Floating parades, market stalls and plenty of beach game stations are set up to celebrate the annual arrival of the whale sharks.
