About Exmouth

If your dream is to swim through an underwater paradise of vibrant coral, brightly coloured fish, dolphins and manta rays in just about the clearest turquoise water on Earth - then Exmouth WA is for you.

Just a two-and-a-half hour flight from Perth (or a two-day drive), it's the ideal base to explore Ningaloo Reef and Cape Range National Park.

The rugged national park is just half an hour drive south of the town - think spectacular gorges, canyons, wildlife and wildflowers. A fun way to explore is by four-wheel drive tour.

As for Ningaloo Reef - just stroll into the water from local beaches and you're on it!

For the ultimate thrill book a tour to swim with the world's biggest fish, the whale shark, which visits these parts between April and June each year to feed on krill.

If you don't want to get your feet wet, you won't miss out - there's even a glass bottom boat tour. Choose from eco safari trips, wilderness tours and top-notch beach, reef and game fishing - the continental shelf is just kilometres off shore.

Northwest snapper and red emperor are hooked regularly and charter boats do half and full day trips. You can even have a go at mud crabbing.

Eating out - there are cafes, restaurants, resorts and a tavern to choose from.

Accommodation-wise, Exmouth has lodges, resorts, hotels, chalets, backpackers and campsites to suit all budgets.
