Exmouth is a town on the Coral Coast of Western Australia, a 15-hour drive north of Perth.

It’s a small town with a laid-back atmosphere, incredible beaches, and is the gateway to the world heritage Ningaloo Reef, a reef we are told by many other Aussies that rivals the Great Barrier Reef for its marine life.

Things to Do in Exmouth

Whether you’re into diving or not, one thing is for sure – Exmouth is all about nature! So slap on your suncream and sun hat, it’s time to get out there are start exploring…

Snorkel in Ningaloo Marine Park

The awesome thing about Ningaloo is the easy access, you can just walk in off the beach and be snorkeling 10 metres from shore. No 60-minute high-speed boat rides like the Great Barrier Reef.

Visit Turquoise Bay, Ningaloo

When you dive into the waters of Turquoise Bay you’re swimming within metres of Ningaloo Reef. The “Bay” is brilliant for swimming, snorkeling or just relaxing.
