For avid snorkelers and scuba divers, there are also plenty of opportunities for spotting reef sharks, sea turtles, manta rays and dolphins in the surrounding waters.More

All about Exmouth

When to visit

With a tropical climate, Exmouth is marvelous all year round. That said, the warm and sunny days of April to October are typically more appealing than the scorching and humid summer (December through February). Wildlife lovers should visit during whale shark season, from April to July, or when majestic migrating humpback whales cruise by, from August to October.

Getting around

Exmouth is spread out, and its streets are often too hot to get around comfortably on foot. You’ll want to rent a car to explore the town and get to Cape Range National Park and the sights along the coast. If driving is not an option, book a tour that includes pickup from your accommodations. If you’re flying into Learmonth Airport, you can take a shuttle bus from Exmouth Bus Charters into Exmouth.

Traveler tips

The beaches around Exmouth are well-known surfing spots, and the best swells show up from July to October. The most popular spot, Dunes, is around 12 miles (20 kilometers) north of town and is the best spot for experienced surfers. Hunter Beach, which is situated a little further along the North West Cape, is a great for beginners and others who want to take lessons. Hunter Beach also boasts sea turtles between December and March.
