Places to stay

Base yourself in Exmouth to explore the natural wonders of Ningaloo Reef, home to our ocean's most fascinating creatures: whale sharks, manta rays, humpback whales, turtles and dugongs. Whether you’re travelling with children, in a group, on a budget or away for a romantic weekend – Exmouth offers a range of accommodation to suit your requirements.

For water views and only meters from the shoreline you’ll find Mantarays Resort, located on Sunrise Beach – the ideal spot to stay to catch a glimpse of whales frolicking in the Exmouth Gulf. If you’re after mid-range accommodation, opt for one of the holiday house, villas or hotels near the main street or stay with other like-minded travellers at one of the campgrounds, backpackers or holiday parks. Or, for an eco-luxe experience and chance to disconnect from the digital world, try Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef. One of the Luxury Lodges of Australia, Sal Salis is a beach-side safari camp nestled in the dunes of the Cape Range National Park.

Things to do

Breathtaking and unforgettable, the coast of Western Australia is one of the most pristine places on Earth. With a total of 12,500 kilometres of mainland coastline, plus its many islands and archipelagos, there’s plenty to discover. World-heritage listed Ningaloo Reef is the world's largest fringing coral reef and one of the most biodiverse coral reefs in the world. Accessible from shore, this extraordinary natural phenomenon stretches from shore to nearly 20 kilometres out to sea and covers a massive 5,000 square kilometres of ocean.

Other popular activities to do in and around Exmouth and Coral Bay include swimming with the gentle giants of the ocean, whale sharks, humpback whales and manta rays, whale watching plus snorkelling to see over 200 varieties of coral on a glass-bottom boat tour or experience one of Australia’s top ten dive sites at the Navy Pier. Step away from the marine activities and join a four wheel drive safari tour of the Cape Range National Park, go hiking around Charles Knife Canyon, watch the sunrise or sunset at Vlamingh Head Lighthouse, take a cruise down Yardie Creek and keep a lookout for the rare black-footed rock-wallaby.
