Top 5 Things to Do in Exmouth / Ningaloo Area

The season is with us, time to get excited about what Exmouth has to offer. The temperature is falling the Whalesharks are here in great numbers, the holiday crew are making their annual migration from South.

We of course love nothing more than surfing or kiting but when we aren’t, heres our top 5 favourite things to do in Exmouth (In no particular order)


You just have to get out to see the Whalesharks. There is a reason that noone comes back from a trip out whalesharking without a big smile on their face. The experience is truly hard to explain to someone who hasn’t been before. The first sight will blow your mind. If you think you can imagine how big a 7meter fish is, think again its bigger than your imagination.


Catch a feed. Exmouth offers some great fishing options. We love to chill out of an evening with a rod in  the water watching the sun go down, were not great fishermen but its all about being out and about. We highly recommend getting out on one of Exmouths fishing charters, experienced fishing fanatics make the Ningaloo area their fishing destination every year, get out there  and find out why.


Watch the whales go by. At the right time you don’t have to be a professional spotter to catch a sight of the magnificent Hump Back Whales, they are here in great numbers. Whilst they become a part of our everyday backdrop I’m still everyday in ore. We recommend getting up to the lighthouse to spot them in Lighthouse bay, combine this with a sunset and you will have memories for life.


Go out for a feed in Town. Your on holiday treat yourself at least once. If its only going to be once we highly recommend the BBQ Farther formally known as Pinochios. Definitely our favourite place to eat. Generous servings of really good food. I can vouch for their Surf N Turf no worries.


As I write number 5 I realise I could go up to number 100, but to keep it short our last recommendation is EXPLORE. Yes no doubt that Turqouise Bay and Oyster Stacks are amazing snorkel spots and the Lighthouse lookout is a great spot to watch the sunset, but we recommend straying away from the herd and taking a few other right hand turns on your way through the Cape Range National Park. Im not going to spoil the surprise and adventure by naming places But I can assure you there are lesser known better Snorkel spots than those most frequented. Happy searching, Enjoy the day 🙂
