Things to do in Exmouth
The Exmouth coastline offers visitors an endless array of stunning, unspoilt, deserted beaches which cater to everyone’s needs: snorkelling, sunbathing, watersports and fishing.
Professional charter boats depart Exmouth daily. They offer a range of tours including half and full day fishing trips, as well as being available for private charter. Some of the sought after species are North West Snapper, Blue Bone, Coral Trout and Red Emperor.
Ningaloo Reef is also recognised as the premier game fishing destination in Western Australia - it is one of the few places in the world where such famous species as Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Spanish Mackerel and Sailfish are hooked regularly. Every year in March Exmouth hosts the Gamex Tournament which always produces some fantastic - often record breaking - catches (a ”Tag and Release” policy is adhered to).
Situated on the west side of the North West Cape is Cape Range National Park, a spectacular place of rugged limestone ranges, breathtaking deep canyons and 50km of pristine beaches. The park covers some 50,581 hectares and its northern boundary is just 40km from Exmouth. Wildlife is abundant with a variety of birds, emus, euros and red kangaroos commonly sighted. Cape Range offers a variety of attractions and activities for visitors interested in the natural environment.
