10 reasons to visit Ningaloo during the October School Holidays

Remember being woken as a sleepy eyed kid and carried to the car during the early hours of a crispy spring morning? Ready to go camping during the school holidays?

The car was been packed the night before with everything from rods & reels, snorkel gear, beach towels, bathers, baked beans and the much needed tent.

These are the memories of so many Australian’s, that as adults we remember with a tinge of longing.

Here’s 10 reasons to visit Ningaloo!

1. Snorkel Turquoise Bay

The sun is hot, the waves are gentle and the reef is alive! Safe for all ages the Ningaloo reef offers an underwater environment right at the shores edge. Jump into the drift off Turquoise Bay and float along discovering the reason Ningaloo is so unique.

2. Tha’ She Blows!

Whales are everywhere at the moment and there’s a fantastic Whale Watching Tour that leaves Exmouth mariner daily. Perfect for all ages, the sunset whale tour offers light nibbles and BYO drinks. Book a tour with us at reception.

3. Don’t forget the Bait!

Fishing is second to none off the Ningaloo reef. From beach fishing to boat fishing there is a range of fishing options for everyone. Often squid run during September and October and can be a delight for kids to catch off the Bundegi jetty.

4. Walk the Reef

Take a walk along the Ningaloo reef at low tide to discover all sorts of weird and wonderful creatures. Take care, wear protective shoes and a hat. Hours of entertainment for everyone. If you’re very lucky you may even spot a turtle resting on the reef.

5. Sunset and Moon Rise at the Ningaloo Lighthouse

At the Ningaloo Lighthouse Caravan Park we have a walk track leading to the top of the range where the lighthouse sits. Offering a view of the sunset and sunrises over the stunning Cape Range National Park and Exmouth region. With a 360′ view don’t forget to take a drink, a couple of chairs and the camera!

6. Learn to Standup Paddle Board!

Treat the family to a SUP lesson with Exmouth Kite Centre. Fun for all ages and with family bookings, this is a must do event while at Exmouth. Book at reception or online at Exmouth Kite Centre

7. Walk the Mandu Mandu Gorge

Take a walk into the Mandu Mandu Gorge at Cape Range National Park. Explore the gorge early in the morning and check that the temperature hasn’t risen above 30 degrease before you leave. Remember to take a hat, sunscreen and plenty of water. There is plenty to see along the walk, allow the morning to explore the gorge.

8. Make the most of the School Holiday Programs

During the school holidays the local Exmouth Shire hosts a school holiday programs all about Exmouth, Cape Range National Park and the Ningaloo region. For the school holiday program visit the Exmouth Shire website.

9. Drive Charles Knife Gorge

Charles Knife Gorge is a drive over the top of the one of the most impressive gorges in Exmouth. Drive to the top for a view over Charles Knife Canyon and to the capped Cape Range oil well. A thrill for the kids as the road is half dirt and exciting to drive.
