Swimming with the whale sharks in Carnarvon

In 2015, Carnarvon Health Campus underwent massive redevelopment with the goal of providing high-quality medical care to the local community through modern, well-equipped health services located under one roof.

The redevelopment saw upgrades in the Emergency Department, dialysis services, mental health, child health and outpatient facilities as well as a range of allied health services such as dental, and physiotherapy.

The upgrades have also brought new opportunities for a range of health professionals to experience the benefits of living in a tropical town with an outback vibe.

Ngaire McCallum, a new Clinical Nurse Manager at Carnarvon Health Campus, has already made the most of the region’s unique lifestyle after moving here 2 months ago.

“I was able to go to the Ningaloo Coast and swim with the whale sharks. I was literally only 2 meters away from them” she said. “Your first reaction is to be somewhat afraid, but soon after swimming with them I was amazed by their beauty”.
Carnarvon is situated in the heart of the Gascoyne Region, on the doorstep of the Indian Ocean, approximately 904km north of Perth. It is the gateway to Australia’s Ningaloo Coast, and in close proximity to the Ningaloo Reef and World Heritage areas.

Thanks to its unique location it is a tropical oasis commonly recognised for its banana plantations, tropical fruits, fine seafood and warm climate Ngaire says there’s much she still hasn’t seen. “I would love to swim with the Dolphins next now that I’ve crossed whale sharks off my bucket list”.

She’s also looking forward to visiting the majestic Kennedy Ranges and Monkey Mia Reserve, which are just the down the road.

With an exceptional climate (average yearly temp of 26°C) and a vibrant and diverse community that offers exciting culinary delights, it’s safe to say Ngaire is enjoying Carnarvon.
