Pristine Cape Range National Park near the town of Exmouth offers some amazing outback adventures from four wheel driving to gorge hiking and bush walking - and what''s more it adjoins a stunning coastline where you can go swimming and snorkelling.
The area is known for the striking contrast of turquoise waters and sandy beaches of Ningaloo Marine Park, and the rugged scenery of Cape Range.
Hire a four wheel drive and explore some of the park''s famous attractions including Shothole and Charles Knife canyons. A five kilometre bushwalking trail connects the two and offers some stunning outback scenery.
Beneath the rocky plateaus is a network of hidden caves and tunnels that harbour unique cave-dwelling animals like wallabies. The rare black-footed rock wallaby thrives in the rock walls of Yardie Creek. You can take a boat tour along the creek for the best view.
At Mangrove Bay a bird hide helps you get up close to sea birds and waders. Birds abound at Mandu Mandu Gorge, where there''s also an excellent bush walking trail.
Cape Range National Park is a half an hour drive from Exmouth. You can fly to Exmouth in around two and a half hours from Perth.
