Exmouth is a coastal town in Australia, located about 450 km from Perth. You’ll have to rent a car or hire a driver for this one-day trip. Exmouth is a great destination for nature lovers and beachcombers alike. It’s home to the most extensive limestone reef system in Western Australia and it has plenty of beaches with clean water and white sand.
The Southern Right whales migrate to Exmouth during the winter months so you can catch them from land or on a whale watching tour. In addition to these attractions, here are some other things to do when you visit Exmouth!
The Southern Right Whales
Exmouth is home to the Southern Right Whale population. These whales migrate up to this area during the winter months, starting in April and migration ending in November. You can see them from land or on a boat tour!
If you choose to take a boat tour, be sure you book it ahead of time because seats fill up quickly. Whale watching tours are also an excellent way to get closer to nature and spot some killer whales while you’re at it!

Parry Park is also home to some incredible pieces of public art including the “Euclid’s Window” by Libby Hart, which features 60 cast concrete columns that have been etched with images of people from around the world. The park is also famous for its annual Christmas Carols by Candlelight event, held each year on the first Saturday night in December.
If you have more time but no kids then head down to one of the many beaches! You can relax on a towel or walk along the shoreline exploring rocks and tidal pools. There are plenty of locals who rent out kayaks and other water sports equipment so be sure to check them out too!
