Mar 11, 2007 - Exmouth to Tom Price and the Cyclone's 06 to 08 March 2007 Western Australia

Jeff The road to Exmouth became tedious as we drove up the peninsular with low bush and thousands of termite hills. I later learned that the termites are grass eaters, can tunnel 50 metres to obtain grass and dig down over 10 metres for water. May be I should have given the termites a bit more credit. Our journey was really about 30 miles beyond Exmouth to the Cape Grange National Park and its stunning beaches and scenery. After driving past the American Telecommunications Post at North West Cape and Vlaming Lighthouse, we came to the...

Mar 24, 2006 - WA: Exmouth, Surfing at Surfers Beach, camping in the wind tunnel - FINISH

Heard a lot about Exmouth, probably because it's famous as the spot to go for whale shark trips, which I really, really want to do, so the town is a bit of a letdown when we get there. It's a newish town, built to support the nearby army bases, and it feels like it. But there's rumours of surf and there's supposed to be great camping down the side of the peninsula along Ningaloo Reef in Cape Range National Park.

Nixes On Tour

Aug 16, 2005 - Roadtrip Day 6 - Coral Bay - Exmouth

We spent 2 days in Exmouth as the Cape Range National Park has what has to be the best beaches in the world (well that we have ever seen). The Ningaloo Reef is supposed to be one of the best reefs in the world to dive and explore and due to the lack of commercialisation in WA you can have a beach to yourself if you so choose. We want to live on Turquoise Bay for the rest of our lives is the only way i can describe how amazing this beach is. At the end of the park there is Yardie Creek, the 1st gorge of many that we have walked this week....

Jul 5, 2005 - Reef diving

LIe in and a short drive today made a pleasant change. Dropped bags off at hostel before heading down to Turquoise Beach for some snorkelling off Ningaloo Reef. Pristine beach and flat calm water, with the waves breaking off the reef about 100m offshore - a slightly disconcerting sight when you're used to the waves coming all the way in, seems weirdly unnatural. A strong sideways rip meant that it was a case of stroll up the beach before entering the water and letting the current waft you back down, with barely any swimming effort required...

Down Under Tour '04

Feb 19, 2005 - Exmouth, Australia

We were ready for a party, celebrating our last stop in Australia. From the ship, the terrian in Exmouth, looked very forbodding, we saw rock, sand and mountains and it was very hot! There are 2500 residents in this town and it was about to be invaded by 1600 passengers from the QE2. There were no public facilities in the town or even any buses or transportation. Buses were driven in from 400 miles away to accommodate all the passengers on their chosen escapades for the day. Shopkeepers had been urged to open their shops, since it was a...
