Exmouth is a town on the Coral Coast of Western Australia, a 15-hour drive north of Perth. It’s a small town with a laid-back atmosphere, incredible beaches, and is the gateway to the world heritage Ningaloo Reef, a reef we are told by many other Aussies that rivals the Great Barrier Reef for its marine life.

But even if you’re not a fan of diving, there’s still plenty of things to do in Exmouth WA.

Shortly after arriving in Exmouth, we bumped into someone who grew up in our hometown in NSW and who had also been traveling around Australia.

Because we were spending a week in Exmouth we finally decided to purchase our own snorkeling equipment from Tackleworld. The guys were super friendly and helpful and had us kitted out in no time.
