    Vlamingh Head Lighthouse
    2 more images

    Navigation along the north west coast had long been known to be one of the most hazardous coastlines in this part of the world. The wrecking of the Mildura off North West Cape in 1907 is a testament to these treacherous shores.

    A Board of Enquiry was established in 1907 and the lighthouse was completed in 1912.

    These underwater pictures were taken with a Canon A70 digital camera in a custom underwater housing. The hardest part is keeping the camera steady and trying to remain still in the water while snorkelling.

    Powder white sand and crystal clear water

    Yep, the water is that clear and blue!

    Turquoise Bay is about a 60 km drive south of Exmouth. It is a pristine place to swim and snorkel with marine life that is only metres from the shore.

    A great way to see under the sea is to drift snorkel. Just head south from the beach for about 300 metres. Jump in and swim straight out about 30 to 50m and let the current take you along in a northerly direction. As you snorkel you'll drift over coral bombies. You can hop out near the sand bar north of the bay.

    Turquoise Bay can have strong currents so please check the tidal movements before diving in. You need to be a reasonably good swimmer.

    And please remember not to touch the corals and beware of fin damage.

    Fauna in the Cape Range Ntl Park

    `Roo

    That it is a National Park you can see at the many animals you can encounter here.
    Drive slowly or you will drive into one.

    Kangaroos (the one in the picture looks a little overslept, because we waked him from his midday nap),
    BTW, do you know what a "Wasaroo" is? That is when you see a kangaroo next to the road, but are too fast to stop, then you say: "that was a (kango)roo".

    Emus - enough that they put up signs: "do not feed the Emus".

    Australian Bustards - real big Birds, these can fly though. Not like the Emus

    Shark at Ningaloo

    Cape Range Ntl Park / Ningaloo Marine Park.
    The two parks can be seen as one, since they are directly next to each other, only that one is on land and the other in the sea.

    There are a lot of wonderful clean and sandy beaches along the road. You will see several smaller roads going off the main road to them.

    Shortly after Northwest Cape is the Surfers Beach - as the name suggests the best spot on the cape for surfing.

    Mauritius Beach with the tantalizing descrpition "Clothing optional".

    Mangrove Bay with Mangroves and the opportunity for Bird watching

    Turquoise Bay and Beach- excellent place for snorkeling: My friend brought this picture back - and she was only in waist deep water ....
    recognize it? It is a shark. She says she was suddenly surrounded by 3 of them . so she decided to get out. We had a few relaxing hours on the beach instead. Don´t forget to bring your sunscreen here .- not many shops around at all.

    The Northwest Cape and a Ship Wreck

    S.S. Mildara wreck at Exmouth

    Starting from Exmouth Town you have to drive first North and the southwest again to go into the Cape Range National Park. Going straight west would be faster, but unfortunately there seems to be no roads you can drive (say; there are some ways, but unpaved and quite steep over the range).

    The road into the Ntl Park are well paved and maintained.

    First interesting thing you reach on your way is the North West Cape.
    A view point looks noth over the sea and a big Shipwreck, not to far from the beach.
    It is the S.S. Mildara

    Cape Range National Park

    Beach at Cape Range NP

    This park is 510 sq km big and runs down the west coast of the cape, along the Ningaloo Reef. There are some beautifu gorges there and you'll have to be careful not to trip on a kangaroo. You'll have to pay a fee to get into the park and some of it is only accesible to 4WD, but it's worth it. You can go snorkelling at any beach and see schools of fish, Sting Rays and huge lobsters. You are also allowed to camp where ever you want to, and you'll only share your spot with a couple of kangaroos.

    Diving or snorkelling

    angel fish with cleaner wrasse

    From Exmouth or Coral Bay (150 km south) you can dive or snorkel the Ningaloo Reef. From Exmouth, you can also do daytrips to the Murion Islands.

    To my mind, the diving here is not as good as at the Great Barrier Reef, but maybe I was only unlucky...

    Snorkelling was good, however (and much cheaper! ;-)).

    There are several diving schools in Exmouth with quite similar (and high) prices.

    The best dive by far was at the Navy Pier, inside the military base. This was real fun. Only about 10 divers per day are allowed to enter (and have to pay quite a lot for this licence). The fish life is incredible there because the pylons of the Pier offer great opportunities to hide and feed.
