Exmouth, where rocky gorges of the Cape Range National Park give way to the white beaches and clear waters of Ningaloo Reef.
Take a bush walk or go camping in the Cape Range National Park; you’ll be awed by the spectacular canyons, gorges, wildflowers and wildlife.
Another way to explore this beautiful park is by a four-wheel drive tour or jump aboard a tour boat along Yardie Creek. Cape Range National Park offers walking trails for every fitness level and there is no better way to watch the sun set then over the Indian ocean from the Vlamingh Head Lighthouse.
Exmouth is the ideal spot for snorkelers, divers, keen fisherman and anyone who just wants to relax. Situated on Australia’s Coral Coast it is home to the Ningaloo Reef and has activities for the whole family to enjoy. Go snorkeling on the Ningaloo Reef; you’ll be amazed by the clear waters, vibrant coral and tropical reef fish. For something a little more exciting try diving with whale sharks (April to June) or manta rays all year round. For those not wanting to get their feet wet, glass bottom boat tours over the Ningaloo Reef are available so you won’t miss out. Fisherman won’t be disappointed here, try your luck at beach fishing or jump on a charter boat for some deep sea fishing where Northwest snapper and red emperor are hooked regularly.
