Exmouth is an excellent year round fishing village, for keen anglers. It has terrific beach weather and is a popular destination for tourists. The North West Cape is the nearest point on the Australian mainland to the Continental Shelf which explains the abundance of fish and other marine life! Exmouth lies close to the Ningaloo Marine Park, with its coral reef providing a wonderful diving experience. The Gape Range National Park with its rugged scenery and abundant wildlife is also easily accessed from Exmouth.
