Nestled at the foot of the Ningaloo Marine Park, Exmouth is a sunny, laid-back coastal resort town. You'll find emus wandering through the streets, cheerful locals, pristine white-sand beaches and blissful, quiet spots ideal for rest and relaxation.
Exmouth is a perfect base for a great Western Australian road trip; once you’ve discovered the fantastic beauty of the Ningaloo Marine Park's coral reefs teeming with marine life, you could visit Cape Range National Park for its stunning cliffs and gorges, and even go turtle-spotting at the Jurabi Coastal Reserve. This area is an example of the best that outback Australia has to offer: whether you're a nature-lover, a whale-watcher, a bush-walker or want to relax on the beach and work on your summer tan at Turquoise Bay, you'll find plenty to delight you in this tourist paradise.
The town and its surrounds are particularly known for wonders of the water: between April and July, you’ll find massive whale sharks (the world’s biggest fish) congregating along Ningaloo Reef. You can even get up close and personal by snorkelling with these beautiful, harmless animals. You’ll find lots of other spectacular marine life too, including humpback whales, dugongs, and manta rays.
Back on dry land, the Naval Transmission Station is 10 minutes’ drive from Exmouth. Designed to communicate with the Australian and US Navies, the site is comprised of transmission towers ranging between 304m-387m; Tower Zero is the second-tallest structure in the Southern Hemisphere. Operated by the US Navy until the 90s, it’s a fascinating reminder of a period when many Exmouth residents were Americans, and locals celebrated the Fourth of July with their neighbours. You could also visit the nearby Vlaming Head Lighthouse: a wonderful backdrop to your travel snaps, especially at sunset.
The Cape Range National Park is an enjoyable contrast from the Reef’s marine scenery. You’ll find kangaroos, wallabies and echidnas here, as well as fantastic bird life. The Park is arid, but surprisingly lush, especially in wildflower season: more than 630 plant species having been recorded here.
Exmouth is popular as a gateway to the Reef, but this charming town is lovely in its own right, with a friendly atmosphere that will have you looking forward to your next visit.
