Exmouth is an ideal hub for a weekend or more leisurely exploring the coast and wildflowers (seasonal) in the interior. You have an opportunity to swim with whale sharks, observe humpback whales in migration, encounters with wild kangaroos and echidna. Visitors can connect with the historical links with World War II and the role Exmouth played in the sea battles. The well known Operation Jaywick responsible for attacks on shipping in Singapore Harbour departed from Exmouth Gulf. The Japanese bombed the location in 1943. Check out Charles Knife Canyon and take in the stunning reds of the cliffs and the desert landscape contrasted against the blue backdrop of the Indian Ocean. And remember to take a selfie next to the next big thing, the gigantic Prawn sculpture.
