In June 2011 the World Heritage Committee inscribed the Ningaloo Coast on the World Heritage List.
World Heritage listing recognises the outstanding universal value of the area's diverse and abundant marine life, its amazing cave fauna and the spectacular contrast between the colourful underwater scenery and the arid and rugged land of the Cape Range.
The World Heritage Committee has inscribed a smaller boundary for the Ningaloo Coast than originally nominated. The boundary encompasses what the World Heritage Committee considered to be the Ningaloo Coast's key marine and terrestrial values of outstanding universal value.
The Ningaloo Coast World Heritage area boundary excludes all areas under pastoral lease.
