After our adventures in Cape Range National Park, I took my friend out on a 'date' for some Italian food. There aren't really that many restaurants in Exmouth to choose from so we opted for this one, which we had seen while walking down Murat Road. We didn't need to book a table or anything because it was mid-week, however I would imagine it would get quite busy on a weekend. Anyway it had been a really hot day (as it is likely to be in Western Australia) so we opted to sit out in the patio area and enjoy the cool breeze coming off the sea.We were seated quickly and the waitress was very friendly. We were left for just the right amount of time to figure out what we wanted from the menu and...Read More

Just 40km from Exmouth on the northwest Cape is Cape Range National Park (imaginative name, I know). The park is massive covering over 50,000 hectares, so if you only have a few days in the area I would recommend heading over to Exmouth Visitor Centre and checking out the tours that they have on offer. We organised a day tour that included all sorts of fun and games in and around the National Park and it only cost AU$40. The tour was a compromise between myself and and my travelling companion because it was the way we could see an equal amount of terrestrial wildlife, to offset the inordinate amount of marine wildlife we had already experienced. I have to say as a none land-based wildlife expert I was...Read More

Right I am going to begin this review with an apology, I am apologising for what will follow, which will be a huge and gushing account of the time when I met the largest fish in the ocean, the whale shark and how AWESOME it was. So I apologise to those people that dislike reading gushing accounts, but it was still a really awesome thing that I was able to do.So our main reason for visiting Exmouth was so that we could swim with whale sharks. Not many non-marine biology people that I have met seem to know what whale sharks are, so I will give you a brief explanation: whale sharks are the largest fish in the ocean (note I said fish, not mammal), unlike many of the other very big sharks the w...Read More

Attraction | "THE most amazing drift snorkel I have ever done!"

We came to Exmouth for one reason and that reason was the marine life. We had both heard loads about how diverse the area was and what amazing dives we could do once we got there. However, there was one thing we were wanting to do more than anything else and that was swim with Whale Sharks. Alas we had to wait a few days after arriving in Exmouth to do this and so we had to do something to amuse ourselves. Luckily for us it isn't difficult to amuse yourself in Exmouth as long as you don't mind getting a bit wet and enjoying the sunshine. I thought I would introduce my friend slowly to the marine world, as she had never snorkelled before let alone done any diving. To do this we headed to Tu...Read More

Travelling around Western Australia really gives you perspective in terms of the scale of Australia. There are no two ways about it, it's massive. You can drive all day and not see another car at all. What's more there are hundreds of miles between so-called towns, which in my mind are more like villages, but hey ho what do I know? Anyway by the time we had travelled via bus north from Perth to Exmouth we were more or less used to this grand scale. We were pleased to arrive in a slightly larger town than some of the others we had found, because this would be our base for the week. I was also just a little bit excited because in a matter of a few days I would be swimming with whale sharks, the biggest ...Read More
