Your guide to Exmouth

All About Exmouth

Located on Western Australia’s North West Cape, Exmouth is a small town that’s home to some of the country’s most beautiful natural attractions. People come from far and wide to swim in crystal clear water at the nearby Ningaloo Marine Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that features a diverse array of marine life such as turtles, whale sharks, manta rays, and hundreds of species of fish.

Back on land at the Cape Range National Park, you can spot kangaroos, wallabies and more, while hiking through stunning natural scenery such as semi-arid landscapes of limestone and sandstone, deep canyons, and gorges, including the breathtaking Yardie Creek Gorge. Beyond the surrounding nature, Exmouth has a lot to offer visitors including a wide range of locavore restaurants, colourful bars, and a beach where you can take a quick swim to cool down on a hot day or bask in a colourful sunset.

The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Exmouth

Exmouth is a popular tourist destination all year long. In summer, it gets hot during the day, but this is when marine life is most active at the Ningaloo Reef. However, accommodations in Exmouth may be a bit more limited during the summer, so it is a good idea to book early. Conversely, it can get chilly during the winter, which may not be ideal if you are interested in spending a lot of time in the water, but this is the best time of year for whale watching. During the shoulder seasons of spring and autumn, you can enjoy more temperate weather while exploring the area through local canal and marina events. Whale sharks can be found in the area from mid-March until late-July.

Top things to do in Exmouth

Ningaloo Marine Park

Located within the Cape Range National Park, the Ningaloo Marine Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Its name stems from the Aboriginal language, Wajarri, and means “deep water.” This headland is home to many powder-white beaches with turquoise water where you can access the renowned Ningaloo Reef. The reef is home to more than 500 different species of marine life. You can also kayak, surf and swim.

Cape Range National Park

Running alongside the Ningaloo Marine Park is Cape Range National Park, featuring rugged scenery, white sand beaches, and native wildlife such as kangaroos, wallabies, and emus. Here, you will find breathtaking gorges full of tranquil water, and dramatic limestone cliffs with hiking trails criss-crossing their way through the park’s interior. The sparkling blue water of the beaches contrasts sharply with the rust-colored landscape creating a striking scene.

Vlamingh Head Lighthouse

This lighthouse is just a 15-minute drive from the Exmouth town centre and offers panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, Ningaloo Reef, and Cape Range National Park. It’s also one of the few spots in Australia where you witness both sunrise and sunset over the horizon. Boasting more than 100 years of history, the lighthouse offers many educational panels and is neighbored by a World War II radar station. If you happen to visit in the winter, remember to bring a set of binoculars to see the migrating humpback whales.
