Things to do

Winderbandi is a great spot for those that want to get away from it all, sit back and relax whilst enjoying breath-taking ocean views.  However, there are a few things to do for those that wish to be slightly more active.

1. Winderabandi Point Fishing

Can you fish at Winderabandi? You certainly can!  Being on the Ningaloo Coast, Winderbandi offers some good fishing.

Ideally it’s more suited to those with a boat, however if you’re limited to fishing off the shore you can still do okay with visitors often catching a number of bread and butter species, including Whiting, Garfish, Flathead and Trevally.  There have also been Queenfish and Giant Trevally caught off the shore for those that have some heavier gear.

Note, if you’re fishing off shore ensure you’re fishing outside of the sanctuary zones (Refer to the Ningaloo Marine Park sanctuary zones map for more info).

If you’re fortunate to have a boat in Winderabandi then your fishing options certainly increase.  Launching via the beach you can then head out to fish the outside of the Ningaloo reef where you’ll be spoilt for choice. 

You can choose to bottom bounce the reefs catching species such as coral trout, spangled emperor, ranked cod or throw out some lures to try picking up some pelagic species such as Spanish Mackerel, Wahoo or Tuna.

There are a few passages that you can take out through the reef though always best to check your nautical charts to identify the safest passage to use. For those fisherman that are keen to know more check out this thread on which provides some great info.

2. Kayaking and Paddleboarding

With the reef protecting the coast the waters are somewhat protected providing an ideal spot for taking the kayaks out or cruising around on your paddleboard.

3. Snorkeling and Swimming

Like other campgrounds within the Ningaloo Coast, Winderabandi also offers some nice areas for swimming and snorkelling so be sure to pack your bathers and snorkel and mask.
