Turquoise Bay Attractions

Walk the iconic red rock landscape of Cape Range National Park and explore the emerald lagoons of Ningaloo Marine Park, one of the largest fringing reefs in the world.

Turquoise Bay offers several top attractions, including…

Ningaloo Reef Marine Park

Less developed than the Great Barrier Reef but much closer to the shoreline, Ningaloo Reef stretches for 280km along the coast of Western Australia.

The reef lies within the 5000km² Ningaloo Marine Park, which stretches south from Bundegi Reef near Exmouth to Amherst Point at Coral Bay.

Here you can see up to 500 species of colourful fish and 220 species of corals, many of which are easily seen just metres from the shore in the shallow waters of the lagoon.

Scuba dive the outer reef to see, dugongs, mantas, huge cod, dolphins, giant whale sharks and humpback whales in season.

Cape Range National Park

Roam the park’s 510km² on foot, quad bike or by four-wheel drive to explore quiet white-sand beaches, vertical cliffs, rugged ochre ranges and vast canyons.

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.

Sunbathe at Turquoise Bay and enjoy excellent snorkelling just off Bundegi Beach. Pack a picnic and enjoy the dramatic scenery from various lookouts. Cape Range National Park is a half-hour drive from Exmouth.

Muiron Islands

These two islands are located just a short boat ride from Exmouth off the tip of the North West Cape. Discover gorgeous white-sand beaches and warm tropical waters.

Go snorkelling and diving over pristine coral gardens to see a huge variety of colourful marine animals.
