Introducing Cape Range National Park
Roam Cape Range National Park's stunning 510km² on foot, quad bike or by four-wheel drive to explore quiet white-sand beaches, vertical cliffs, rugged ochre ranges and vast canyons.
What to do and see
Choose from a network of scenic bushwalking trails including the Mandu Mandu Gorge, Yardie Creek and Lightfoot Heritage trails. Another choice is the popular Thomas Carter trail, a 5km walk that links the Shothole with Charles Knife canyons.
Hike through colourful wildflowers from July to November and peer into small caves and tunnels hidden in cliff faces to see unique cave-dwelling animals.
Spot rare black-footed rock wallabies, red kangaroos, euros and countless species of birds at Yardie Creek, where water trapped by a sand bar offers perfect swimming conditions.
Stroll trails above vertical red rock walls or enjoy a relaxing cruise along the creek. Pack a picnic and enjoy the dramatic scenery from various lookouts.
Sunbathe at Turquoise Bay and enjoy excellent snorkelling just off Bundegi Beach and in the crystal clear waters of Ningaloo Reef.
Don't miss the Milyering visitors centre that offers a comprehensive display of the region's cultural and natural history.
Cape Range National Park is a half-hour drive from Exmouth and is accessibly from both the east and west coasts.
