Water Worlds

A few days is enough to pack in plenty of fun in Exmouth where the nearby Ningaloo Reef and gorges deliver aquatic adventure on an epic scale. See or swim alongside giant and gentle whale sharks (March-September) and humpback whales (July-November), and catch a drift snorkel in Turquoise Bay over bright coral, turtles, manta rays and a plethora of reef fish. Spot eagles, rock wallabies, euros and kangaroos at Yardie Creek, and find ultimate rest and relaxation at luxury beach safari retreat, Sal Salis.

With a bit of planning you're still going to be able to fit a lot into 3-5 days. The drive from Perth is 15 hours so you might want to consider the short flight to Exmouth (Learmouth) to make the most of your time. With a few days up your sleeve though, you could squeeze in a swim with a giant, explore creeks and gorges, and soak up Exmouth’s craft brews and laid back vibes.
