Enrich and Indulge

Exmouth and Ningaloo – Australia's longest fringing reef – has fresh seafood, aquatic playgrounds and simple luxury in spades. Head here to dine on local oysters, prawns and crayfish at Mantarays Ningaloo Beach Resort, taste a paddle of craft beers at Froth Brewery, and have long beachy breakfasts along Thew or Huston Street. Swim alongside gentle giant whalesharks (March - September) and Humpback Whales (July-November), or catch a drift snorkel at Turquoise Bay, over bright coral, turtles, manta rays and a plethora of reef fish any time of the year.

If you've just got a handful of days set aside for exploring Exmouth and the Ningaloo coast, then you might want to consider hopping on a short flight to Exmouth (Learmouth) to make the most of your time. With a few days up your sleeve you can still squeeze in a swim with a giant, and soak up Exmouth’s craft brews and laid back vibes...check out our longer holiday ideas too.
