Coral Bay – Exmouth
Travelling in a Mighty Highball Camper
Approx 1.5 Hours
Exmouth was our final stop before making our way back down the beautiful West Coast. We were most excited to get here throughout our trip as we couldn’t wait for the highlight of our journey – swimming freely with the whale sharks. Aside from this we found so many more reasons to fall in love with Exmouth.
Here are our top picks for Exmouth
Swim with the whale sharks
We were lucky enough to spend the day on the Ningaloo Reef with the awesome Kings Reef crew. We had the opportunity to swim freely alongside 4 different whale sharks. We like to consider the ocean our second home, but for a whale shark it is their only home and we were overwhelmed that a creature of this size and power was happy enough to let us share it with them. With a depth of 50 metres below and nothing else in sight, the feeling of gliding through the ocean next to these gentle giants is one we will never forget. With such a good energy from the experienced Kings team, we were able to have countless swims with 4 different whale sharks.
Cape Range National Park
This National Park was completely untouched and full of natural beauty. One of the most special aspects was the wildlife we discovered while exploring the park. We came across echidnas, emus, eagles and kangaroos. Its also home to the hatching ground for the sea turtles. Our two favourite places within the park were Turqoise Bay and Yardie Creek.
Turqoise Bay – Hands down the clearest, bluest and calmest beach we have ever experienced. We felt like we walked into paradise when stepping onto the white sands here. The photos speak for themselves!
Yardie Creek – We took a short hike up to the top of the Yardie Creek Gorge. The views looking over the creek leading into the ocean were spectacular. A highlight was watching the eagles flying low through the gorge.
Where to catch the sunset
Vlamingh Head Lighthouse – we loved this spot to watch the sunset as the vibe was so nice in amongst other travellers soaking the same views
