Exmouth  Western Australia

Tourism blurbs describe Exmouth, on North West Cape, as a place where 'the timelessness of the Australian Outback combines with the underwater wonders of a tropical coral reef.' But not too many of them mention that Exmouth is near where Australia’s record wind gust of 267 km/h was recorded during Cyclone Vance in 1999.

Established in 1967 as a support town for a joint Australian/American naval communications station, Exmouth provides some of the world’s best scuba-diving conditions, especially within the Ningaloo Marine Park which boasts historic shipwrecks and stunning coral reefs within its warm, clear waters.

Here’s where you’ll see the giant whale shark – the world’s largest fish – and turtles that come ashore to lay their eggs in summer. The game fishing around here is simply sensational, because Exmouth is the closest sports fishing harbour to the Continental Shelf. And there are many lovely, still beaches, too.

The former U.S. Navy communications station at North West Cape is a major tourist attraction with its huge communications towers dominating the skyline. The highest of the 13 towers soars to 388 metres and is acknowledged as the tallest structure in the southern hemisphere.

Festivals - Gold Classic (May), Arts Quest (July), Gamex - world class game fishing ( October-November)
