Exmouth, Western Australia

April 2023, time for a 12-day holiday in one of the more out-of-the-way places in Australia - the small town of Exmouth, Western Australia. Main reason for the trip was to experience a rare hybrid total solar eclipse (success!!), but also to experience all that Exmouth has to offer; from fine dining in the warm outdoor air, exploring the rugged terrain inland, snorkelling in the warm waters exploring the corals and fish of the pristine Ningaloo Reef just a few meters offshore and swimming with majestic whale-sharks.

 

We have arrived....!

Vlamingh Head Lighthouse and anchor memorial (view to SW)   Charles Knife canyon looking towards its exit to the Exmouth Gulf Charles Knife canyon further inland Pebble Beach - many of the pebbles have holes in them. My favourite.

Dining tables at Sal Salis. Opulent foodie experience of the highest order Whale-shark symbolism is a prominent feature in the Exmouth region Sal Salis: glamping in style under beautiful skies - day and night Beautiful sunsets were a feature: crepuscular rays over the Indian Ocean

Another gorgeous end-of-day spectacle at Sal Salis Yet another gorgeous sunset at Sal Salis

Warning? Dingoes about!

A salient reminder....
