The Shire of Exmouth is an area of 6,261 square kilometres situated on the tip of the North West Cape in Western Australia 1,270 kilometres north of Perth. Our town, which is quite remote was originally constructed in 1964 as a support town for the United States Naval Communications Station Harold E Holt. Although Exmouth has a resident population of 2,400 in the period April to October, annually the numbers swell to approximately 6,000 with the influx of many tourists that travel north for the beautiful climate and conditions that we are fortunate to have.
Exmouth is one of the few areas in Australia that can boast the Range to Reef experience. The Cape Range National Park which has some spectacular gorges is an area of 50,581 hectares and its main area is focused on the west coast of the Cape which provides a large variety of camp sites on the coastal fringe of the Park .
The Ningaloo Marine Park abuts the Cape Range National Park and encompasses 260 kilometres of coastline. At the closest point the reef is within 100 metres of the shore. The reef itself comprises 200 species of hard corals and 50 species of soft corals and is a divers and snorkellers paradise. The beaches of the west coast have the most pristine blue, aqua to turquoise waters with white surge breaking over the reef and pure white sandy beach. Turquoise Bay is the most relaxing beach to just sit back, relax and soak up the beautiful surroundings and sunshine. For further information go to www.dec.wa.gov.au
