Given its location on Australia’s North West Cape, trips to Exmouth afford a huge range of possibilities in terms of water-based activities. From swimming to snorkelling, and from fishing to diving, you’ll find something that will capture your attention.
One of the most popular things to do here, and one of the main draws for visitors, is the arrival of whale sharks off the coast from April to June. These are the largest fish in the world and if you visit at this time of the year you might get the opportunity to swim with them.
If you prefer not to dip your toes in, you can still experience some of the beauty of the Wingaloo Reef by taking a glass bottom boat tour.
Back on land, four-wheel drive tours of the local area are offered. You can also make the trip to nearby Cape Range National Park to get up close and personal with stunning examples of Australian flora and fauna.
On top of that Exmouth also offers some great shopping opportunities. The town’s stores sell everything from jewellery to souvenirs, along with lots more.
